§ Mr. Biffen
asked the Minister of Power what representations he has had from the Electricity Consultative Council of the Merseyside and North Wales area concerning an investigation of the Central Electricity Generating Board's estimated bulk supply tariff for 1968–69 should be referred to the National Board for Prices and Incomes; what action he proposes; and if he will require the National Board for Prices and Incomes to disclose the names of consultants employed by them as a result of references made by his Department.
§ Mr. Marsh
The Chairman of the Council has written to me making this proposal and I have replied that I will bear it in mind when the Central Electricity Generating Board send me their 1968–69 tariff later this year under the early warning arrangements. On the names of consultants employed by the National Board for Prices and Incomes, I refer the hon. Member to the Answer given to him by my right hon. Friend, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, on 20th January.—[Vol. 739, c.138.]
