HC Deb 21 March 1955 vol 538 c152W
48. Mr. Watkins

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power the result of his inquiries into the question of the formula for charging contributions towards the cost of rural electricity schemes.

Mr. Joynson-Hicks

I assume that the Question refers to my right hon. Friend's inquiry as to the South Western Electricity Board's new scheme for rural development contributions. I understand that this is meeting the requirements in this part of the country and there are no grounds for my right hon. Friend to intervene in the matter.
