HC Deb 26 November 1934 vol 295 cc500-1
53. Mr. DAGGAR

asked the Minister of Transport the number of units, to the nearest million, of electricity generated by authorised undertakings and railway and tramway authorities and non-statutory undertakings; the percentage increase on 1921 figures; the quantity of coal and coke used; and the percentage increase on 1921 figures for the year 1933?

Captain AUSTIN HUDSON (Lord of the Treasury)

In 1933, 14,964 million units were generated and 10,646,267 tons of coal and coke used. These figures represent increases of 206 per cent. and 64 per cent. respectively on the 1921–22 figures. The figures for 1921–22 were depressed by the prolonged stoppage in the coal industry in 1921.
