HC Deb 12 December 1944 vol 406 c1065W
Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power why no representatives of publicly owned undertakings or of the interests of consumers of electricity have been appointed to the National Fuel and Power Advisory Council; and why no prior consultations took place with the local authorities on the setting up of this body.

Major Lloyd George

The Fuel and Power Advisory Council has deliberately been constituted as a small body, not representative of any particular interests. It would, therefore, have been inappropriate to have consulted organisations of any fuel producers or consumers about the membership.
