§ 32. Sir ARNOLD GRIDLEY
asked the Minister of Transport how many hours elapsed before the recent failure of the electricity supply at Bradford terminated with full restoration to all consumers; when an official report will be made public; and how many of the selected stations operated by municipalities and companies, respectively, are dependent upon non-duplicated switch-gear control, as was apparently the case at Bradford, which made help from the grid impossible?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
The public inquiry into this matter will be opened on 24th March by Mr. H. Nimmo, the chief engineering inspector to the Electricity Commission. In the meantime, I trust that I may not be pressed to give fragmentary information.
