asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will set out in tabular form (a) the movement in the real price of electricity from 1945 to the latest available date and (b) in a parallel table, the movement in electricity consumption per capita over the same period.
Inquiries are being made for all the data and a reply will be made as soon as possible.
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what was the average domestic consumption of electricity units in England and Wales in the most recent annual period for which figures are available; and what was the average domestic annual bill.
The average domestic consumption of electricity in England and Wales in 1975–76, the latest year for which accounts have been published, was 4,290 kWh. The average revenue obtained by area electricity boards from domestic consumers in that year was £82.
