HC Deb 15 November 1933 vol 281 cc926-7
51. Sir P. DAWSON

asked the Minister of Transport whether in view of the coming into operation of the grid next year, he proposes to introduce any legislation to deal with and to facilitate distribution, in view of the fact that such legislation is essential to the success of the Central Electricity Board?


The possibility of improving the organisation of the distribution of electricity is naturally a subject which engages my attention, but I do not accept my hon. Friend's suggestion that the success of the Central Electricity Board is dependent on further legislation in the matter.

54. Lord SCONE

asked the Minister of Transport when electricity will be introduced into the village of Errol?


The Grampian Electricity Supply Company have informed me that in order to obviate the wayleave difficulties of which my Noble Friend is aware, they have arranged to deviate the route of the proposed electric line to Errol, and my consent to the deviation was given on 1st November. I understand that the company hope to afford a supply in Errol at an early date.
