Energy Authorities in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Central Electricity Board v Halifax Corporation
    • House of Lords
    • 01 Nov 1962

    In my opinion, on vesting date the Appellants would have been able to issue a Writ containing a Statement of Claim claiming payment of the money, which statement would not have been struck out as disclosing no cause of action.

  • South of Scotland Electricity Board v British Oxygen Company Ltd (No 1)
    • House of Lords
    • 19 Jul 1956

    The question may be put thus: whether discrimination may not be exercised against one consumer and a preference given to another where both are charged the same rate in circumstances which justify a differential rate between them. If the answer is "Yes", it would equally follow that where the differential was too small a like complaint could be made.

  • British Oxygen Company v South West Scotland Electricity Board (No 2)
    • House of Lords
    • 16 Apr 1959

    In my opinion the first governing principle is that a tariff which imposes a charge upon the Respondents involving their being unduly discriminated against is contrary to section 37 (8) of the Electricity Act, 1947. In principle the Appellants should not be permitted to retain payments for which they have no warrant to charge. The Respondents may therefore recover whatever sum they may be able to prove was in excess of such a charge as would have avoided undue discrimination against them.
