§ Mr. Barron
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what are the criteria used for the setting of both domestic and industrial tariffs on electricity prices by area boards.
§ Mr. Michael Spicer
The criteria for setting electricity tariffs are set out in the electricity statutes. As it is the responsibility of the industry to fulfil its requirements in the statutes, I have asked the chairman of the Electricity Council to write to the hon. Member.
