§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for Energy how the EEC Commission or Energy Research Management Committee will allocate the £24.5 million fund for energy research between various public and private organisations; on what basis it will decide to place contracts with one organisation rather Man another; and if its decisions will be published.
§ Mr. John Smith
The draft decision in Commission document COM(74) 2150 on Energy R & D projects has yet to be considered by the Council of Ministers. I cannot anticipate its decision. I can, however, refer the hon. Member to the information which I gave him on these matters during the debate on 17th April.
