§ Mr. Skeet
asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he will raise with Great Britain's EEC partners the legal requirements and code of practice which would apply to gas pipelines linking the United Kingdom and EEC countries; what representations, if any, he has had indicating their position on this matter; and what statements of policy he has made to them.
§ Dr. J. Dickson Mabon
My right hon. Friend has had no representations from EEC countries, nor has he made any statements of policy on this subject. I see no present need to raise this matter within the Community.
