§ Mr. Richard Page
asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he has any plans for establishing some form of outside scrutiny to monitor the efficiency of the Central Electricity Generating Board.
§ Mr. Mellor
The CEGB, like other nationalised industries, will be subject to investigation by the Monopolies and Mergers Commission in accordance with the arrangements announced by the Financial Secretary to 3W the Treasury on 30 November last year. The costs and efficiency of the CEGB were recently investigated by the Monopolies and Mergers Commission, whose report was published in May 1981.
