I am informed that in order to give every aid to existing industries and with the view of attracting new industries into Ayrshire, the Ayrshire Electricity Board have recently decided to grant a special discount in respect of industrial power supplies conditional on the payment of the account within a prescribed time. The Board have intimated that consistent with the provisions of the Electricity Acts the lowest possible electricity rates will be granted to any new industrial users.
