§ 29. Colonel Gomme-Duncan
asked the Minister of Transport what steps he has in mind for the electrification of railways in Scotland.
§ Colonel Gomme-Duncan
While I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his reply, may I say that this answer will be received in Scotland with the customary cheer which we always give to answers of this type?
§ Sir William Darling
As the foremost producer of hydro-electricity in these islands is in Scotland, does the right hon. Gentleman not think it extremely unfair not to allow the electrification of any part of our railways in Scotland?
