§ 42. Mr. ALPASS
asked the Minister of Transport the prices charged to consumers for electricity in the counties of Somerset and Gloucester, and the city of Bristol, respectively?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
As the answer is somewhat long and contains a number of figures, I will, with my bon. Friend's permission, circulate it with the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following is the answer:
§ The latest particulars I have as regards the prices charged for electricity in the city of Bristol are:
|For lighting only||5d.|
|For heating and cooking only||ld.|
§ For combined domestic supplies:
§ A tariff with a fixed charge based on rateable value plus ld. per unit.
§ The charges for lighting and power are subject to a scale of discount according to consumption. In addition to the Corporation of Bristol, there are 28 other undertakers in the counties of Somerset and Gloucester, and if my hon. Friend will let me know the places in which he is more particularly interested, I will endeavour to supply him with any further information he may desire.
