§ 37. Mr. TURTON
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the York Corporation, the statutory undertakers under the Electricity Acts, will not agree to supply Myton Hall, Myton-on-Swale, with electricity unless they are given a lump sum of £1,000 and a guarantee of a minimum rental of £50 for five years; that such a cost would be far more than the cost of a private installation; and whether he will take steps to prevent the declared purpose of the Electricity Acts to provide cheap electricity to country villages from being defeated by such excessive demands being made by the statutory undertakers upon those who wish to take advantage of the provisions of the Acts?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
I am asking the Commissioners to communicate further with the Corporation on the matter.
