HC Deb 28 June 1982 vol 26 c228W
22. Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what representations he has received concerning the Government's intention to remove barriers to the private generation of electricity.

Mr. Lawson

I propose to remove the statutory bar on the private supply of electricity as a main business and generally to improve relations between private suppliers and the public system. I have consulted interested organisations and will take their replies into account when preparing detailed proposals for legislation.
