HC Deb 06 February 1947 vol 432 c395W
97. Sir H. Lucas-Tooth

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware of the difficulties and dislocations which are being caused in North London and elsewhere by the intermittency of the cuts which are made in electric power; why accurate particulars of the time and area of such cuts cannot be announced a reasonable time in advance; and whether he will take steps to ensure that any future cuts are reduced to a minimum and, that when necessary, they are made in accordance with a definite plan and after adequate warning.

Mr. Shinwell

In replies to the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Keeling) on 31st October and to my hon. Friend the Member for Aston (Mr. Wyatt) on 30th January, I explained the reasons for shedding electricity load and the measures taken to reduce inconvenience to a minimum. I can add nothing to these replies.
