HC Deb 01 February 1929 vol 224 cc1279-80W
Major GLYN

asked the Minister of Transport, whether any further schemes under the Electricity (Supply) Act, 1926, are about to be issued in addition to those for South-East England, Central England, North-West England, and Central Scotland; and, if so, when, for what districts, and in what order?

Colonel ASHLEY

In addition to the schemes to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers, the Mid-East England Scheme has recently been prepared by the Electricity Commissioners and transmitted to the Central Electricity Board. The Commissioners expect to be able during the course of the present year to complete the preparation of schemes for North-East England, South-West England and East England, respectively, in that order.
