asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will make timber poles available in connection with the scheme for street lighting at Abersoch, Caernarvonshire, undertaken by the Merseyside and North Wales Electricity Board in view of the high financial burden which the use of steel poles will impose upon the parish council.

I have been asked to reply. The Abersoch Parish Council have made no application to my Department in connection with this scheme, but timber poles are scarce and cannot be made available for street lighting purposes. If the parish council will consult my divisional road engineer he will advise them about using other kinds of lamp standards.
