HC Deb 17 December 1973 vol 866 c239W
Mr. Stainton

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will now order rota electricity cuts, bearing in mind that the overtime ban by electrical engineers will preclude certain fine switching procedures and complicate differentiation between priority and high risk areas.

Mr. Emery

No. Because of the industrial action by the power engineers the only system of rota cuts which could be operated would be one which affects both essential and non-essential users.
