HC Deb 16 July 1924 vol 176 cc376-7
89. Mr. E. BROWN

asked the Minister of Transport if an application has been made under the Electricity Supply Acts, 1882 to 1922, for a special Electricity Order in respect of the parish of Wasperton and of parts of the parishes of Barford and Sherborne, in the rural district of Warwick and other parishes in the rural district of Brailes, Stratford-on-Avon, and Southam in the County of Warwick; and, if so, if he will say what action has been taken upon this application?


The application referred to was made to the Commissioners on 30th June, 1924. A decision has not been arrived at by the Commissioners, as the time prescribed by the public notices for the lodging of objections does not expire until 31st. July.


Is the hon. Gentleman aware that a good deal of anxiety exists in this area about this application?


We cannot make inquiry until the time has expired for the notice to be put in, and that is at the end of this month.
