§ Mr. Grimond
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what contracts are maintained with United States research into solar energy; and if any joint research is conducted by Great Britain or the EEC with the USA.
§ Mr. Eadie
I am unaware of any current contracts with the United States on research into solar energy. The USA, United Kingdom and other countries of the International Energy Agency are considering, as is the European Commission, the possibilities of setting up an internationally sponsored programme of research into solar energy.
