§ 9. Mr. Evelyn King
asked the Minister of Power what gross profit was earned by the Southern Electricity Board in the year ended 31st March, 1964; and what is the estimated additional revenue likely to be obtained by recently announced increased charges to consumers.
§ Mr. Frederick Lee
The board's accounts published for the year ended 31st March, 1964, showed a trading surplus of just over £8 million (after depreciation but before interest). On the second part of the Question, I am asking the chairman to write to the hon. Member.
