HC Deb 20 May 1981 vol 5 cc87-8W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether the Government intend to take over the funding of the International Energy Agency research project—fluidised bed combustion—at Grimethorpe, Yorkshire, following relinquishment by the United States Government.

Mr. John Moore

The United States Government are still considering whether to continue to support the project. Should they decide to withdraw we shall discuss how best to proceed with our other partners in the project, the Federal German Government.
