Mr. Ashdown

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what is his policy towards the recommendation of the Director General of Fair Trading in his report on the resale of electricity by landlords that there should be a new criminal offence of reselling electricity for domestic use at a price higher than the maximum price fixed by the appropriate electricity board.

Mr. Howard

The Government will shortly be making an announcement in response to the report by the Director General of Fair Trading.
