§ Mr. Temple
asked the Minister of Power what was the total outlay authorised by Her Majesty's Government on gas and on electricity power development during 1965.
§ Mr. Frederick Lee
Approval has been given for capital expenditures on fixed assets in Great Britain in 1965–66 of £117 million by the gas industry and of £733 million by the electricity industry. The industries have since agreed to defer a small part of the expenditures covered by these approvals as a contribution to lightening the load on the economy in 1965–66.
