HC Deb 15 February 1938 vol 331 c1724W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Minister of Transport in how many instances do authorised electricity undertakings, being municipal authorities, supply light and power outside the jurisdiction of the municipality; and whether, in the case of a city corporation being appointed an authorised undertaker, that body would normally have permission to supply consumers outside the boundaries of that city?

Mr. Burgin

Of the 229 municipal corporations who are authorised undertakers, 122 have power to supply electricity outside their own administrative boundaries.
