§ 28. Mr. Ronald Bell
asked the Minister of Power if he will direct the North Thames Gas Board under the Gas Act, 1948 to institute a system of accounting which will allow consumers of gas and renters of cookers in the area to receive gas bills with reasonable promptitude.
§ Mr. Freeson
No. The Board informs us that there is no general delay in rendering accounts, but my right hon. Friend has asked the Chairman to write to the hon. Member about the local reasons for particular delays in the Slough area.
