HC Deb 16 January 1986 vol 89 c634W
50. Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what sum he now expects will be received from the sale of British Gas in 1986–87 and 1987–88; and what is his estimate of the total fees and charges which will be received by City institutions involved in the sale.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

I cannot speculate on the value the market will place on British Gas. Total fees and charges will depend on the precise structure of the offer, on which decisions have not yet been taken.
