Electricity Bill (3 Feb 1947)

Mr Edward Porter: I am sorry that the hon. and gallant Member for East Grinstead (Colonel Clarke) has left the Chamber because I want to refer to a question I asked him about what he described as the agreement made by the National Farmers Union and the electricity companies. The reason I asked that question was to find out whether such an agreement had been made by the Government, because I think Members of...

Electricity Bill (3 Feb 1947)

Mr Edward Porter: I apologise. I understand that the Clyde Valley Company operate on the fringe of the City of Glasgow. The prices charged by the municipality are considerably less than the prices charged by the Clyde Valley Company to its consumers.

Electricity Bill (3 Feb 1947)

Mr Edward Porter: The figures for the Central Electricity Board have been issued to date, and their statement is that 80 stations in this country are, in the main, controlled by municipalities and are responsible for 91 per cent. of the production of electrical units.

Orders of the Day — Economic Affairs (Manpower) (28 Feb 1946)

Mr Edward Porter: I am afraid I do not understand the Opposition in their attempt to be real so far as this discussion is concerned.

Clause 1. — (Advances to Minister of Works.) (3 Dec 1945)

Mr Edward Porter: I have been a member of a local authority for a few years, and I have also been a member of the National Housing Committee organised by the Association of Municipal Corporations. In view of experience of housing questions under local authorities, the probabilities are that the Minister will not accept the Amendment. These are a few of the things we had to experience after the last war. In the...

I sincerely hope the Opposition's Amendment will not be pressed, because if it was accepted it would mean that local authorities would be left high and...
