HC Deb 30 June 1980 vol 987 cc390-1W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether the Private Utility Transmission Company is intended to have a common carrier status; and whether the participants themselves will determine the transmission charges.

Mr. Norman Lamont

Proposals on these matters will be developed by the organising group mentioned in my reply of 19 June to my hon. Friend the Member for Northampton, North (Mr. Marlow). I have certain powers relating to these questions under part III of the Petroleum and Submarine Pipe-lines Act 1975.
