§ Mr. Nabarro
asked the Minister of Power to what extent the higher coal and electricity prices recently announced will enable these industries to finance capital expenditure programmes to a greater extent than before from their own internal resources, and thus diminish commensurately the amount of Treasury moneys for that purpose within the provisions of the Finance Act, 1960.
§ Mr. Wood
I must ask my hon. Friend to await publication of the White Paper on Government expenditure "Below-the-line", which will contain information about the level of internal resources available to finance the capital programmes of the industries in 1960–61 and 1961–62 compared with previous years.
