HC Deb 28 January 1974 vol 868 cc10-1W
45. Mr. Tinn

asked the Minister for Energy what investigations are being made into the exploitation of geothermal power in Cleveland where test borings for other purposes are reported to have produced results indicating the suitability of this area.

Mr. Emery

The Government keep under review the general situation and prospects for geothermal energy in this country, but we are not aware of any specific investigations related to the Cleveland area. I shall, of course, be pleased to receive any special information that the hon. Member may have.
