HC Deb 27 November 1987 vol 123 cc356-7W
Mr. Andrew MacKay

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy whether any changes are to be made to the Office of Gas Supplies running costs limit for 1987–88; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Morrison

I am advised by the Director General of Gas Supply that his office's running costs limit will be reduced by £500,000 from £ 1,750,000 to £ 1,250,000, reflecting a more gradual build-up of work load and hence of staff than earlier estimated.
