HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 c365W
131. Mr. Longden

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will now give a general direction to the Central Electricity Generating Board to purchase its fuel in the cheapest market.

Sir J. Eden

A direction would be inappropriate and unnecessary for the reasons given in the reply to my hon. Friend on 16th November.—[Vol. 806, c. 327.]
