asked the Minister of Transport whether he can yet state the amounts of the charges for electricity by authorities in the London area as asked for by the hon. Member for Stretford, and also now issue his promised statement?

The statement in preparation by the Electricity Commissioners will show for all company and municipal supply authorities (including those in the London area) who have increased charges for electricity since the outbreak of war, the present charges, and what the increases are. The statement will, I hope, be ready next week.

When forwarding a copy to my hon. Friend, I will also send a return showing, for all London electricity authorities, the charges in force on 1st January, 1937; and I will have prepared a supplementary statement showing the present charges for London authorities not covered by the first statement.

Will the right hon. Gentleman publish that statement in the Official Report as other Members would like to see it also?
