Mr. Cledwyn Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, in view of the special dependence of the aluminium smelting industry on a regular supply of electricity, what steps are being taken to ensure this.

Mr. Emery

Arrangements for a regular supply of electricity to the aluminium smelting industry have been made and the industry has agreed to accept an appropriate reduction from its normal consumption.
