Gas and Electricity Meter Rents

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry – in the House of Commons on 25th April 1944.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. De la Bère:

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether, in view of the widespread system of charging meter rents by gas and electricity undertakings, he will investigate the system adopted by similar American undertakings as regards the supply to the consumer and make a statement to the House.

Major Lloyd George:

I have no detailed information about the practice of American gas and electricity undertakings in regard to meter rents, but I am having inquiries made.

Mr. De la Bère:

Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman bear in mind that we are very anxious to have something done about these matters here?
