HC Deb 27 June 1955 vol 543 cc1-2W
24. Mrs. Castle

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will issue a general direction to the British Electricity Authority that the cost of placing electricity cables underground should be spread over the undertaking as a whole, instead of being carried regionally, where this is necessary to preserve amenities.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

I do not think that it would be desirable to make such a general rule about one aspect of exceptional costs.
