HC Deb 11 March 1948 vol 448 cc169-70W
41. Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power when he expects to be able to table a draft of the regulations to be made by him and the Secretary of State for Scotland jointly under Section 55 of the Electricity Act, 1947 having regard to the imminence of the vesting date under the Act.

Mr. Gaitskell

The preparation of these regulations in proceeding, but in view of the necessity for consultation with the trade unions and associations representing persons who may be affected, I regret I am at present unable to forecast when the draft regulations will be tabled.
