HC Deb 29 February 1944 vol 397 c1248
55. Sir Percy Hurd

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what progress has been made with plans for the more general supply of electricity in rural areas for domestic and farm purposes.

Major Lloyd Georģe

I have as yet nothing to add to the reply which I gave my hon. Friend on 18th January.

Sir P. Hurd

Does not the Minister think it is about time the public knew what plans are in preparation in this important matter?

Major Lloyd Georģe

As my hon. Friend will appreciate, this is a very big question. I can assure him that a tremendous amount of work is being done on it.

Mr. De la Bère

Why is it that my right hon. and gallant Friend permits the electricity undertakings to flout the House of Commons year after year?
