HC Deb 27 July 1965 vol 717 c99W
Mr. Alison

asked the Minister of Power whether he anticipates that the area gas and electricity boards will achieve their individual financial obligations for the quinquennium ending 31st March, 1967; and to what extent his policy varies from one industry to the other in requiring any individual board to meet its agreed objective.

Mr. Frederick Lee

The progress that individual gas and electricity boards are making towards fulfilment of their agreed financial obligations will be made clear in the annual reports and accounts they will be publishing in the autumn. I make no distinction between gas and electricity in the importance I attach to the boards' endeavouring to achieve their agreed objectives.
