HC Deb 01 May 1947 vol 436 c2142
10. Mr. Keeling

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether it is intended to introduce a Bill of Indemnity to excuse electricity undertakings from penalties for suspending, at the request of the Government, the performance of their statutory obligations.

Mr. Shinwell

No, Sir.

Mr. Keeling

Would the Minister say whether the Government propose to give any protection to electricity authorities which open themselves to proceedings by cutting off electricity without any statutory authority?

Mr. Shinwell

As far as I know, they have not asked for it.
