THE ADMINISTRATION

the Minister of Fuel, after consultation with specified interests. The Act (1926) provides that the Board shall ~upply electricity to distributors through the Grid, which it erects and operates. It has many powers, including borrowing up to 60 million pounds and compulsory purchase, some of them subject to approval by the Electricity Commissioners set up in 1919, whose functions are mainly of a licensing and supervising character. Their consent is necessary before generating stations may be erected or extended, before existing distributive undertakings can borrow money or make agreements for bulk supply. Generally their orders must be confirmed by the Ministry of Fuel. Their expenses are met not by the Ministry's vote but by a levy on the supply industry. Thus, although appointed by the Minister, neither body is under day to day control by the Minister or by the Treasury; nor can members be removed. It is worth noting that the Bill of 1919 gave compulsory powers to t1le Electricity Commissioners, but that these were deleted by the House of Lords. In consequence the Commission was unable to unify the system of supply. The creation of the Central Electricity Board with such powers was thus rendered necessary. This alone seems to account for the existence of the two authorities.
The London Passenger Transport Board(l) consists of a Chairnian at £12,500 a year, a Vice-Chairman at 10,000 pounds, and five part-time members at £750, of whom two must have had at least six years experience of London local government. The original Bill, prepared by Mr. Herbert Morrison, provided that, as in all the above mentioned boards, the Minister should appoint. But this provision proved unacceptable to the Conservatives when they adopted the Bill,

1 Absorbed from 1948 by t}ie Transport Commission, appointed by the Minister.
