HC Deb 25 October 1976 vol 918 c45W
25. Mr. Loyden

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what additional action he intends to take to end the power of disconnection by the energy boards of domestic consumers' energy supplies.

Dr. John A. Cunningham

The Government have agreed that the electricity and gas industries should apply a code of practice for payment arrangements and disconnections. The question of legislation will be kept under review in the light of the working of this code, which we shall monitor carefully.
