HC Deb 11 December 1984 vol 69 c409W
Mr. Donald Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Energy how much of the 5 per cent. increase in electricity bills referred to on page 24 of the Government's reply to the fourth report from the Environment Committee (Cmnd. 9397) he expects to be incurred in the first year and each of the subsequent years by consumers, as a percentage of their electricity bill, if the Government were to meet the European Economic Community draft directive on sulphur dioxide pollution which proposes a 60 per cent. reduction by 1995.

Mr. Peter Walker

The detailed figures are a matter for the Central Electricty Generating Board and I am asking the chairman to write to the right hon. Member.
