§ 32. Mr. Lennox-Boyd
asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he supports proposals for an EEC common energy policy.
§ Mr. John Moore
The main thrust on energy developments comes from national programmes. The Community can, however, play a valuable role in international discussions and also in setting broad energy objectives and providing complementary action in appropriate cases. I have seen no specific new proposals for an EEC common energy policy, but I am prepared to examine carefully any precise proposals which are made.
