§ 8. Mr. C. R. Hobson
asked the Paymaster-General if he has now considered the report made to him by Deloitte, Plender and Griffiths into the affairs of the contracting section of the London Electricity Board; and when the said report will be placed in the Library of the House.
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Power (Sir Ian Horobin)
No, Sir. Since the inquiry started, the Southampton police have found it necessary to investigate certain transactions in this connection. I cannot, therefore, say when the report will be made available to Parliament.
§ Mr. Hobson
While thanking the hon. Gentleman for that reply, may I take it that, irrespective of the inquiries now proceeding, the report will be made available to hon. Members at the earliest possible moment?
