HC Deb 16 July 1962 vol 663 c3W
29. Mr. Stones

asked the Minister of Power what estimate he made, in settling the financial target for the North Eastern Electricity Board, of how the consumption of electrical energy in that area in the current year will compare with the consumption in recent past years.

Mr. Wood

At the time I agreed its financial objective with the North Eastern Electricity Board, the Board estimated that about 7 per cent. more electricity would be consumed in its area in 1962℃63 than in 1961–62.
