§ Mr. Frank Field
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what information he has about 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 Scotland.
§ Mr. Lang
The information requested on electricity disconnections is not held centrally but I am asking the 29W chairmen of the South of Scotland Electricity Board and the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board to write to the hon. Member.
Information in respect of gas consumers is a matter for British Gas plc. I am asking the chairman to respond to the hon. Member's request.
