§ 11. Mr. Jopling
asked the Minister of Power for how many years ahead a firm programme of capital expenditure in the gas industry has been worked out.
§ Mr. Gunter
The gas industry has prepared a programme of capital expenditure for the five years to 1972–73. Firm approval was given by my predecessor for expenditure in 1968–69, and will be given this year for 1969–70 in the light of the current annual investment review.
