HC Deb 12 December 1928 vol 223 cc2138-9W
Major GLYN

asked the Minister of Transport what progress has been made with the Wessex electricity supply scheme; how much labour is there being employed in the construction of the grid power lines in that area at the present time; and whether it is now possible to purchase from the Stationery Office a map of Great Britain indicating the proposed main and subsidiary lines constructed, in course of construction, or projected which have been approved by the Electricity Board?

Colonel ASHLEY

I am not clear to what precise scheme the first part of this question refers. A portion of the authorised area of the Wessex Electricity Company is included within the scope of the South East England Electricity Scheme which was adopted by the Central Electricity Board last February. If my hon. and gallant Friend would specify more precisely what information he desires, I will communicate with the Board. With regard to the last part of the question the schemes adopted by the Central Electricity Board under the Act of 1926 have been published by the Stationery Office with maps showing the main transmission lines provided for under the schemes.
