HC Deb 10 March 1920 vol 126 c1318W
Lieut.-Colonel MURRAY

asked the Minister of Transport whether steps are being taken by the Electricity Commissioners to examine into the use of water power in various parts of the country for the generation of electricity?


The question of the use of water power is being inquired into by the Water Power Resources Committee, appointed by the Board of Trade and the Ministry of Health, of which Sir John Snell, the Chief Electricity Commissioner, is Chairman. That Committee are drafting their report, to which it will be the duty of the Electricity Commissioners to give the necessary consideration.
