HC Deb 07 November 1983 vol 48 c14W
Mr. Hal Miller

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what progress is being made towards the installation of a European power grid.

Mr. Giles Shaw

There is already a considerable degree of interconnection between national utilities on the continent. The 2 gigawatt link between the United Kingdom and France is due to be commissioned progressively during 1985 and 1986.
