§ Mr. Rowlands
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what is the most recent correspondence he has had with the British Gas Corporation concerning the sale of the Wytch farm interest; and whether he will publish the terms of his correspondence.
§ Mr. Peter Walker
I refer the hon. Gentleman to my reply to the hon. Member for Wells (Mr. Heathcoat-Amory) on 11 May. The most recent correspondence I have received on this topic from the British Gas Corporation confirmed that it was making the agreement with the Dorset Bidding Group in accordance with the terms given in my reply.
