§ Mr. Frank Field
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what are the numbers of domestic consumers disconnected from (a) their electricity and (b) their gas supply in (i) the quarter and (ii) the 12 months to December 1986 in each electricity and each gas region in England, Wales and Scotland.
§ Mr. Peter Walker
This is a matter for the industries themselves. I have asked the chairman of the Electricity Council and British Gas plc to write to the hon. Member with the information requested. The question of electricity disconnections in Scotland should be pursued through my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland.
