HC Deb 05 December 1967 vol 755 cc251-2W
42. Mr. Archer

asked the Minister of Power whether he will take stops to control excessive charging on the resale of electricity by landlords and site-owners to the ultimate consumer.

Mr. Freeson

The Electricity Boards fixed maximum prices for electricity resold for domestic purposes in 1965. The Electricity Consultative Councils have been asked to keep a watch on how the control is working in practice and it has been made clear that further action will be considered if the evidence shows this to be necessary.
