HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 c203W
123. Mr. Driberg

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he is aware of the long delay in providing electricity to two farmers in the neighbourhood of Tolle-shunt D'Arcy, Essex, particulars of which have been supplied to him; and if, in view of the fact that the various schemes relating to this area were submitted for the approval of his Department some two months ago, he will expedite such approval forthwith.

Mr. Robens

My right hon. Friend's approval would be required only for the erection of overhead lines and no application for these has yet been received in connection with the schemes to which my hon. Friend refers. I understand that the Area Electricity Board are at present discussing certain points with the local planning authority.
