86. Mr. Brian Harrison
asked the Minister of Power what proposals have been made to him by area electricity 257W boards for price increases since July, 1966; and what steps he has taken as a result of these requests.
§ Mr. Marsh
Two area electricity boards have made such proposals and they were asked to defer price increases at least until the end of the period of severe restraint.
I have yet to complete the discussions with the Electricity Council referred to in my reply of 11th April to the hon. Member for Stroud (Mr. Kershaw).—[Vol. 744, c. 160.]
