§ Mr. Hayhoe
asked the Secretary of State for Energy (1) how many explosions in which people have been injured are known or suspected to have been caused by gas leaks during the last three months; and what were the comparable quarterly figures for the previous two years;
(2) of how many explosions known or suspected to have been caused by gas leaks during the Christmas and New Year holiday period he is aware; and what are the comparable figures for each of the last 12 months;
§ Dr. John A. Cunningham
Statistics for the later months of 1976 are still subject to revision. I am therefore asking the Chairman of British Gas to write to the hon. Member as soon as these figures have been established.
