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.
