HC Deb 06 February 1956 vol 548 c149W
35. Colonel Stoddart-Scott

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he is aware that the Yorkshire Electricity Board are supplying Pool - in - Wharfedale and Arthington with electricity the voltage of which falls below the statutory limit; how many users are affected; the cause; and what action he proposes to take.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

I understand that, because of the overloading of the local high voltage system, the voltage of the supply in these districts falls slightly below the statutory limits during periods of peak demand and that 874 consumers are affected. The Yorkshire Electricity Board has planned a major reinforcement scheme for completion by next winter to improve the position.
