§ 42. Sir J. Mellor
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Planning what evidence from 1628 organisations responsible for electricity supply the Scott Committee received before making statements and recommendations concerning electricity supply?
§ The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Planning (Mr. Henry Strauss)
A list of the organisations which gave evidence before the Scott Committee will be found in the appendix to the Report, which has been presented to Parliament.
§ Sir J. Mellor
Why was the Joint Committee representing all supply undertakings, both municipal and commercial, not invited to give evidence?
§ Mr. Strauss
I clearly cannot say what governed the Committee in the choice of those who gave evidence before it, but no interest that did not give evidence is prevented from making any representations it may wish in regard to any recommendations contained in the Committee's Report, which, as my hon. Friend knows, is now being closely examined.
