HC Deb 31 March 1981 vol 2 cc60-1W
Mr. Rowlands

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what estimate his Department has made of the cost of giving the additional concessions to those industrial gas consumers on uninterruptable supplies of freezing the price as at the end of December 1980 and cancelling proposed quarterly increases until December 1981.

Mr. Norman Lamont

The costs involved in different patterns of industrial firm gas contract prices are a matter for the British Gas Corporation. I will ask the chairman of the corporation to write to the hon. Member.
