HC Deb 30 July 1934 vol 292 c2293

(by Private Notice) asked the Minister of Transport whether he can give any information to the House in connection with the electricity breakdown in 13 counties on Sunday; and if he can give any reasons for the breakdown in one or more stations?


The Central Electricity Board have already issued a statement to the Press explaining the origin of this unfortunate trouble and the steps taken to meet it. I made immediate inquiries and have been assured by the board that such a combination of circumstances is not likely to recur.
