§ Sir Robert Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what percentage of Scottish energy production is from(a) nuclear power, (b) coal, (c) oil and (d) renewable sources. 
§ Mrs. Liddell
The most recently available figures for the indigenous production of primary fuels in Scotland are for 1998. Data are, however, not available without disproportionate cost for oil (or gas) production from Scotland or Scottish waters, so it is not possible to calculate the shares of nuclear power, coal or renewables.

The figure for Scotland is an estimate mainly based on generating capacities at 31 December 1998.
