HC Deb 01 August 1951 vol 491 c216W
Mr. Vosper

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what directions he has given regarding the allocation of resources to new hydro-electric schemes in view of their high capital cost.

Mr. J. Edwards

I assume the question is in respect of the capital investment programme of the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board. It has been decided that, for the time being, there should be no major increase in the amount of work done annually on hydro-electric schemes.
