HC Deb 02 April 1980 vol 982 cc233-4W
Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give a direction to the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board not to proceed with its surcharge on islands until an inquiry has been held into its pricing policy.

Mr. Younger

The electricity consultative council for the North of Scotland district has submitted formal representations to me, under the provisions of schedule 7 to the Electricity (Scotland) Act 1979, asking that I should give a direction to the board on this matter. I have these representations under consideration.
