HC Deb 13 March 1980 vol 980 cc682-3W
Mr. Grylls

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will issue a general direction to the British Gas Corporation to import gas to strengthen the United Kingdom supply position.

Mr. Norman Lamont

No. The British Gas Corporation keeps under review the possibility of further gas imports, but the advantages of any particular transaction depend on the specific terms and conditions proposed.
