HC Deb 20 March 1980 vol 981 cc320-1W
Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will list in the Official Report the basic prices for industrial gas in each of the European Economic Community countries, including the United Kingdom.

Mr. Norman Lamont

I refer my hon. Friend to table 2 of the reply given on 23 January 1980 [Vol. 977, c. 225–28.] to a question by the hon. Member for St. Helens (Mr. Spriggs) which contained the latest available information on industrial gas prices in each of the EEC countries. The prices are based on tariffs in force on 1 January 1978.
