HC Deb 05 June 1945 vol 411 cc661-2
14. Sir Thomas Cook

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will authorise the commissioners to increase the supply of electricity at present available to the agricultural distracts of Norfolk.

Major Lloyd Georģ

It has been necessary during the war to restrict the development of electricity supply to war needs and cases of exceptional hardship. The relaxation of these restrictions is at present under consideration, but, even if some relaxation were found possible, shortages of materials and man-power will continue for some time to limit the rate of development.
