§ 42. Mr. P. A. HARRIS
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Departmental Committee on electricity has prepared a report in favour of dividing the whole country into definite areas for the production of electricity; if so, whether such scheme involves the purchase of existing undertakings; and whether a Member of the House of Commons will be appointed to serve on this Committee?
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The second part does not therefore arise, and, in reply to the third part, a Member of the House of Commons is already serving on the Committee, namely, the hon. Member for Forfarshire.
