HC Deb 20 June 1939 vol 348 cc2039-40W
Mr. De la Bère

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the postponement of a measure for the reorganisation of electricity supplies, and the growing dissatisfaction of consumers generally at present conditions of supply, he will consult with the Electricity Commissioners with a view to directing the attention of the supply interests to the urgent necessity for a greater standardisation of tariffs, charges, and voltages, and for the wider application of the two-part tariff system of charging, so that such tariff may be available at a reasonable price for consumers everywhere?

Captain Wallace

The possibility of securing greater standardisation of tariffs, charges and voltages is continually under review by the Electricity Commissioners. With regard to the concluding part of the question I am informed that a two part tariff for domestic supplies is already available in the areas of the large majority of undertakings.
