HC Deb 06 February 1963 vol 671 cc58-9W
40. Mr. Millan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish the evidence given to the Mackenzie Committee on electricity generation in Scotland, particularly that given by the North of Scotland Hydro-Electricity Board and the South of Scotland Electricity Board on the question of a possible merger of the two boards.

Mr. Leburn

I am informed that no written evidence on the subject of amalgamation was submitted by either Board. The Committee decided that the hearing of oral evidence would be in private and that such evidence should not be published; the witnesses who appeared before the Committee were so informed, and thus there can be no question of publishing that evidence now.
