§ Mr. Flynn
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make it his policy to ensure that in the forthcoming privatisation of the electricity supply industry present and future nuclear and coal-fired power stations will be treated equally with regard to obligations on the new owner-operator companies; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Michael Spicer
I am considering a range of options for the future structure of the privatised electricity supply industry and for the regulatory arrangements which will be needed. No decisions have yet been taken.
