§ 57. Mrs. Clwyd
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what information he has about progress on reviewing the financial contract between British Coal and the Central Electricity Generation Board in preparation for the lapse of the present coal supply contract; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Michael Spicer
I understand that the industries are considering continuing the present agreement covering the supply of coal—which was firm for the first two of its five years—for a further year. No final agreement has yet been reached.
