HC Deb 18 December 1979 vol 976 cc112-3W
Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he plans to change the British Gas Corporation's statutory obligations to supply gas.

Mr. David Howell

I intend to introduce legislation in the New Year which among other things will limit all statutory entitlements to gas supply to 25,000 therms a year and will make provision for the corporation to enter into contractual arrangements for any supplies above that level.
