As regards gas, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, South-West (Mr. Albert Evans) on 29th April. Of the fourteen electricity boards, twelve, including the two Scottish Boards, have so far fixed maximum charges for electricity re-sold for domestic purposes.
There are still a large number of landlords and owners of property in this country who are exploiting tenants not only by high rents but also by having slot meters in houses. Will my right hon. Friend try to get them to do something to stop this ruthless exploitation?
My hon. Friend will remember that we have taken a good deal of action on this issue. As I have pointed out, 12 of the boards have so far fixed the maximum price in line with the statement which I made to the House.
