§ 68. Sir G. FOX
asked the Minister of Transport if he will state the square mileage of rural districts in this country which are now adequately supplied with available sources of electrical supply and whether there are any such districts in Oxfordshire?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of TRANSPORT (Lieut.-Colonel Headlam)
I am afraid I could not furnish statistics in the form for which my hon. Friend asks, which would necessarily depend upon what standard he has in mind for determining whether any particular district is or is not adequately supplied with available sources of electrical supply. He will, however, find a good deal of information on the general question which he raises on pages 17 to 41 of the Tenth Annual Report of the Electricity Commissioners.
§ Sir G. FOX
Is my hon. and gallant Friend aware that the slow progress of extending facilities for electricity supply is causing inconvenience in certain parts of Oxfordshire?
