Mr. Cook

asked the Secretary of State for Energy, further to his reply to the hon. Member for Edinburgh, Central of 16 February, Official Report, c. 28, when he anticipates a reduction in the range of uncertainty, at present a factor of three, in the estimates for the cost of generating electricity from wave power; and at what estimated cost in p/kwh further development will be undertaken.

Mr. Norman Lamont

A comprehensive review of the costs of electricity generation from wave energy devices is to be undertaken during the next year and is expected to reduce the present range of uncertainty.
