HC Deb 01 May 1928 vol 216 cc1539-40W
Brigadier-General BROOKE

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the present high charge of 7d. per unit for lighting purposes is still in existence in Pontefract despite the low price of coal; and whether he will have inquiries made into the matter?

Colonel ASHLEY

I have received no representations with regard to the price of electricity in Pontefract since the hon. and gallant Member communicated with me on the subject last year, and I am not aware of the present position. I will, however, cause further inquiry to be made.
