§ 10. Sir Ian Fraser
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what progress has been made in regard to systems for warning users of electricity of impending power cuts.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
The electricity boards are continually trying to improve their local systems of warning by telephone and private radio. In addition, this winter, the B.B.C. will broadcast warnings on the Light Programme wavelength of 1,500 metres when load shedding is imminent. I should like to thank the B.B.C. for all the help they have given us in this matter.
§ Sir I. Fraser
How far has the telephone been used, and how far can the load shedding be arranged on particular days, fixed in advance, with particular firms?
