HC Deb 30 October 1987 vol 121 cc469-70W
Mr. Jim Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many domestic electricity disconnections were carried out in the years 1983–84, 1984–85, 1985–86 and 1986–87 due to indebtedness.

Mr. Viggers

Precise figures of domestic disconnections are not readily available, but the total numbers of disconnections for debt effected during the years concerned were 1148, 1599, 1858 and 2619, respectively. These figures include a very small number of commercial disconnections.
