HC Deb 19 November 1987 vol 122 c634W
Mr. Wray

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what assessment he has made of the impact on manufacturing industries in the Greater Glasgow area of the proposed increases in the price of electricity; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lang

The recently announced proposals to increase electricity prices in England and Wales next year do not apply to Scotland. The setting of electricity tariffs in Scotland is a matter for the commercial judgement of the electricity boards and it will be for them to announce decisions about any revisions when these have been reached.
