HC Deb 13 February 1980 vol 978 c639W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he is prepared to amend the Gas Act 1972 and the Energy Act 1976 to enable the British Gas Corporation to sell gas used as a feedstock for the chemical industry at preferential rates so that the added value in the product may be maximised.

Mr. Norman Lamont

Section 25(6) of the Gas Act 1972 already enables the BGC to enter into special agreements for the supply of gas where the tariffs are not appropriate.
