HC Deb 10 July 1987 vol 119 c286W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make a statement on his Department's current projections on energy prices.

Mr. Parkinson

Given the uncertainties associated with energy price projections, the Government's approach is to continue taking measures to stimulate competition and encourage efficiency. These measures, along with international market forces, have contributed to the fall in energy prices in real terms over recent years and offer the best chance of securing competitive and stable prices in the future.
