§ Mr. Eadie
No comprehensive list on a project basis is available and some of the research is not in the public sector. Much information about energy research projects in the public sector is published in the annual reports of the nationalised fuel and power industries, the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority and the research councils, and the annual research and development reports of Government Departments. These reports are in the House of Commons Library.
§ Mr. Durant
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what are the functions of the Advisory Council on Energy Conservation; and how much money has been given to the Council by the Government in 1974, 1975 and 1976.
§ Dr. John A. Cunningham
As regards the functions of the Advisory Council on Energy Conservation I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Louth (Mr. Brotherton) on 17th November. No funds have been made available to the Council, though expenses incurred on Council business are met from public funds.
