HC Deb 02 June 1954 vol 528 cc95-6W
90. Mr. Palmer

asked the Minister of Supply when it is expected that the cablemaking associations will supply the in- formation asked for about prices charged to the British Electricity Authority in relation to those charged to other users of electric wires and cables.

Mr. Low

As my right hon. Friend stated in his reply to the hon. Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Mr. Swingler) on 17th May, the Government have asked the trade associations concerned to give an assurance that they will furnish the Government from time to time with information about the relationship between prices charged to the British Electricity Authority for mains and super-tension cable and those charged to other buyers. It is proposed to ask for this information at regular intervals. The details remain to be settled.
