HC Deb 09 May 1950 vol 475 c188
41. Mr. M. MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland to what areas in the Outer Hebrides it is intended to extend electricity this year.

Mr. McNeil

In Lewis, electricity distribution lines are at present being erected in the Eye Peninsula and in the Tolsta area, and current is being provided for new consumers in the area continuously. Work has begun on the lines from Stornoway to Barvas and to Ness.

Mr. Walter Fletcher

Will this current be alternating or intermittent?
