HC Deb 12 May 1952 vol 500 c832
1. Mr. Gerald Nabarro

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what directions as to policy in regard to the standardisation and co-ordination of electricity tariffs throughout the United Kingdom he will give with a view to promoting efficiency and economy of distribution and use of electricity for industrial and domestic purposes, in accordance with the Ministry of Fuel and Power Act, 1945.

The Minister of Fuel and Power (Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd)

None at present.

Mr. Nabarro

Does my right hon. Friend intend to take any action in the matter, in view of the widely varying conditions, particularly conditions of contract, that exist among the 13 boards in various parts of the country?

Mr. Lloyd

Following the Electricity Act, my predecessor approved the general principles of the proposals with regard to standardisation put forward by B.E.A. only last year.
