HC Deb 16 November 1936 vol 317 cc1337-8W
Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will supply any figures to show, in convenient form, the number of parishes or villages in the rural districts of Louth, Grimsby, and Caister which have been reached by the recognised electrical undertakings, and those that are still without a supply?


I am informed by the Electricity Commissioners that in the three rural districts mentioned by the hon. and gallant Member, distributing mains had been laid at 31st March last in 9, 13 and 5 parishes respectively. At the same date there remained 79, 8 and 45 parishes respectively in which distributing mains had not then been laid.
