HC Deb 20 April 1926 vol 194 cc1045-6W

asked the Minister of Transport whether it is the intention of the Electricity Commissioners to withhold permission to the Bristol Corporation for proceeding with their electrical station at Portishead until such time as the Electricity (Supply) Bill has been placed upon the Statute Book?

Colonel ASHLEY:

I understand that the Electricity Commissioners do not propose to come to a decision on this point until Parliament has considered the Bristol Corporation Bill, but it may not be necessary to defer the consideration of this matter as suggested by my hon. and gallant Friend.
