HC Deb 16 July 1962 vol 663 cc2-3W
25. Mr. Ainsley

asked the Minister of Power if he will consult the President of the Board of Trade and the Central Electricity Generating Board on the extent to which further industrial energy needs to be made available for new industrial projects in those parts of the country where industrial expansion is planned.

Mr. Wood

The Generating Board plans to meat the electricity demand in all parts of the country as economically as possible. I frequently discuss these matters with the Board and with my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade.
