§ 27. Mr. Teeling
asked the Minister of Works what powers of requisitioning have been delegated to the Electricity Boards by his Ministry; and under what circumstances can the Electricity Board request the Minister of Works to requisition property.
§ Mr. Teeling
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that when this matter was being put before the Hove Council they were informed by a representative of the Electricity Board that the Board had power to requisition if they so desired, and that on that occasion the matter was 780 passed only by a majority of one? Is he aware that now everybody believes that requisitioning was threatened?
§ Mr. Erroll
Does the Minister's reply mean that he can use Government authority to requisition property for the British Electricity Authority?
