HC Deb 26 March 1956 vol 550 c169W
Captain Duncan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what are the specially favourable terms which the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board has agreed with the British Transport Commission for the charging of batteries for a rail car service on a branch line in Scotland; where these batteries will be charged; and what branch line will be served.

Mr. J. Stuart

I am informed that the Board has offered to supply electricity for this purpose at a charge of ¾d. a unit for an experimental period but that, while the matter is under active consideration, no agreement has been concluded and no decision reached as to where any experiment would be conducted.
