HC Deb 16 November 1938 vol 341 c879
78. Mr. Crowder

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the recent centralisation of the electricity supply for London and the Home Counties at a very small number of power stations, satisfactory arrangements have been made to ensure alternative sources of supply to this area in the event of any of the stations being damaged in air raids?

Captain Hudson

Yes, Sir. The Grid system not only connects such stations with one another but enables supplies to be drawn, if necessary, from generating stations in other parts of the country.
