§ 56. Mr. BRIANT
asked the Prime Minister whether the scheme for the establishment of large central generating electricity stations for the purpose of supplying cheap electricity all over the country has been abandoned; and, if not, whether he can state what steps will be taken to carry it out?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of TRANSPORT (Mr. Neal)
I have been asked to reply. The legislative scheme of the Electricity (Supply) Act, 1919, has not been abandoned. The Electricity Commissioners have provisionally determined a number of districts and are now engaged in holding the necessary inquiries.
