§ Mr. Leadbitter
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what estimates he has made of the energy requirements of the United Kingdom by 1980 and 1985, respectively.11W
§ Mr. Tom Boardman
While my Department keeps energy demand under continuous review the issues involved are complex and subject to considerable variation. Hence, I do not consider that it would be helpful to publish demand estimates out of the context in which they are prepared.
