HC Deb 26 March 1964 vol 692 c139W
9. Mr. Stainton

asked the Minister of Power, in view of the fact that the Eastern Electricity Consultative Council at a meeting on 13th March objected to the Electricity Board's practice of placing on the consumer all responsibility for making good money lost when thieves steal from electricity meters, the type of which is a matter determined by the Board itself, whether he will reconsider his policy of leaving this discretion to the area boards, and issue a general direction prohibiting the practice.

Mr. Peyton
