§ Mr. Gray
There have been no specific proposals for the import of Norwegian gas into the United Kingdom for re-export to the Continent, but we have assured the Norwegians on a number of occasions that we would be willing in principle to consider projects of this kind on their merits. Such projects could involve linking the British and European grids.
§ Mr. Skeet
asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he will authorise the linking of the British and European natural gas grids to facilitate sales under clause 12 of the Oil and Gas (Enterprise) Bill.
