To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will place in the Library a copy of his reply to the European Commission's request for the United Kingdom's response to the Consortium of Opposing Local Authorities and Friends of the Earth reports relating to competition policy and the nuclear industry. 
§ Mr. Eggar
The Government are aware of only one report sent by the Consortium of Opposing Local Authorities and Friends of the Earth to the European Commission. This report is entitled "UK Nuclear Privatisation and Public Sector Liabilities".
The Commission is aware of the Government's view that there is no basis for the concerns which were expressed by COLA on publication of that report.
