§ Mr. Albert Evans
asked the Minister of Power what action is being taken by gas and electricity boards to prevent overcharging for gas and electricity supplied by landlords to tenants.
§ Mr. Frederick Lee
The gas boards have fixed maximum charges since the early years after nationalisation. Nine area electricity boards in England and Wales have done so, with effect from 1st July, 1965, for electricity resold for domestic purposes and the others expect to follow shortly.
