HC Deb 18 May 1977 vol 932 c168W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what is his attitude to the European Commission's proposals relative to the consultation procedure affecting the siting of power stations which are likely to affect member States within the Community, Document 506/76.

Mr. Benn

The Government are not committed to either the draft Council resolution to set up a consultative body or the Council regulation on the consultation procedure. The proposals have policy implications for the United Kingdom and further substantive discussion is necessary.
