§ 2. Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what progress he has made in the implementation of schemes for combined heat and power.
§ Mr. John Moore
I announced on 12 March the nine areas where more detailed work under our CHP feasibility programme will be undertaken. We are currently appointing sub-consultants to assist the lead consultants in this work by carrying out market and engineering surveys in these areas.
§ Mr. Spearing
When does the Minister expect the studies to be completed? Does he agree that in certain circumstances combined heat and power could be a most effective way of saving energy in a future fuel crisis?
§ Mr. Hooley
Will the Minister confirm that Sheffield is being seriously considered as an area in which the experimental scheme will take place?
