§ Mr. Penhaligon
asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will publish the report prepared for his Department on the economics of energy extraction from hot dry rocks; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. David Hunt
The report on the economics of energy extraction from hot rocks is in draft and is being discussed with those involved with the hot rock project. I expect to publish the report when it is available as is the normal custom for the renewable energy programme.
