§ 39. Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine
asked the Minister of Power whether, in view of the increasing demand for electricity, he will now appoint a committee to advise him in cases where a conflict arises between the provision of electricity and the preservation of the countryside.
§ Mr. Freeson
No. A committee is not necessary. Statutory procedures—to be extended under the Town and Country Planning Bill before Parliament—enable all factors to be considered before decisions are made.
