asked the Minister of Fuel and Power when he will give his decision on the application of the North Eastern Electricity Board for his consent to the erection of a high voltage line to the village of Catton that was made on 15th December, 1948; and whether he is aware that the two months delay in giving his consent is hampering agricultural production.
