HC Deb 12 December 1955 vol 547 c137W
108. Mr. Alport

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power to make a statement upon the effects of the present curtailment of capital investment in the field of rural electrification.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

Until the comprehensive review of the proposals of the Electricity Boards for capital expenditure next year has been completed it would be premature to make a statement on any class of capital project covered by that review.
