HC Deb 10 July 1924 vol 175 cc2492-3W

asked the Minister of Transport whether the Electricity Commissioners were represented or took part in the recent Word Power Conference at Wembley; if so, by whose authority; under whose auspices the Conference was convened; and whether municipal electricity undertakings were invited to take part?


All the Government Departments concerned, including the Ministry of Transport and the Board of Trade were officially represented at the World Power Conference, and the Chairman of the Electricity Commissioners with the concurrence of my predecessors and myself represented the Institution of Electrical Engineers on the Council. The Conference was organised by the British and Allied Electrical Manufacturers' Association in conjunction with scientific and technical institutions in this country. I am informed that municipal engineers were officially invited and that many were present during the proceedings.
