HC Deb 19 April 1926 vol 194 c826
49. Viscount SANDON

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of its suitability, he will transfer the Electricity Department from the Ministry of Transport to the Board of Trade?


There is no Electricity Department of the Ministry of Transport. My Noble Friend presumably refers to the Electricity Commission, which was set up by the Electricity (Supply) Act, 1919, as a separate body responsible to the Minister of Transport. I see no advantage in altering that arrangement.
