HC Deb 23 June 1958 vol 590 cc2-3W
18. Mr. Gower

asked the Paymaster-General if he will ensure that the Weir Committee, which he has set up to consider aspects of the administration of the electricity and gas industries, will take account of the advantages which have accrued in Wales through the institution of a separate Wales Gas Board; how the administration of services of a like kind by the two industries in Wales could be facilitated by the creation of a Wales Electricity Board, with the same geographical boundaries, and if he will make a statement.

Sir I. Horobin

No. This question was fully considered by the Herbert Committee which found the difference in boundaries in Wales to be financially advantageous to Welsh consumers.
