Original Motion Text
That this House condemns as obscene the massive increase in profits announced on 19th June by the newly-privatised East Midlands Electricity Company, which have been achieved in just six months since privatisation on 11th December 1990 by a totally unnecessary and unwarranted 11 per cent. increase in charges upon their customers, many of whom are elderly, infirm, unemployed or on low wages.
