10. Mr. Wells
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what financial or other encouragement he is giving to research and development of the uses of solar energy.
§ Mr. John Smith
The United Kingdom is making a contribution to the programme of research on solar energy in the EEC, and officials in my Department are assisting in a study being undertaken by the International Solar Energy Society. My right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for the Environment and for Education and Science are also supporting research in this field.
