§ 102. Sir W. Wakefield
asked the Minister of Power what action has now been taken in connection with the obtaining of natural gas from Holland; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Wood
When the existence of this gas became known, informal contact was established with the Dutch authorities on behalf of the Gas Council. Some weeks ago the Council officially informed the Dutch Government of its interest as a prospective purchaser.
If commercial negotiations lead to a proposal I will consider it in connection with the industry's development programme.
