HC Deb 26 January 1987 vol 109 cc55-6W
26. Mr. Spencer

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make a statement on the feasibility study of the Leicester combined heat and power consortium.

Mr. David Hunt

I met the Leicester CHP consortium on Wednesday 21 January in Leicester to receive a presentation on its report. The Government fully support CHP district heating schemes where they are economically viable, but believe the key to development must lie with the private sector. It is now up to the Leicester consortium to take the project forward.
