§ Mr. Arbuthnot
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what licences have been granted under section 6 of the Electricity Act 1989 authorising the generation, transmission or supply of electricity.
§ Mr. Wakeham
My right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and I have now issued licences to all those requiring licences from commencement of the new regime: principally, but not solely, the successor companies of the electricity supply industry in England and Wales and Scotland. Copies of those licences will be placed in the Libraries of each House. They are substantially the same as the model licences published on 12 February and 22 March.
These and future licences will also be available for inspection and copying at the offices of the Office of Electricity Regulation.
