HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c46W
Mr. Freeson

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will list those (a) electricity boards and (b) gas boards which own underdeveloped land identified as suitable for housing, stating the quantity of such land in each case, with existing infrastructure services sufficient to allow development to proceed.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

This is a matter for the industries concerned and I am asking the chairman of the British Gas Corporation and the Electricity Council to write to the right hon. Member. Matters concerning the electricity supply industry in Scotland are the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland.
