HC Deb 28 October 1987 vol 121 c260W
Mr. David Nicholson

asked the Secretary of State for Energy when he now expects to receive the final report of the Severn tidal power group; how much public funding has been committed to this investigation; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Michael Spicer

The Severn tidal power group expects to produce its report towards the end of 1988. The study is expected to cost £4.26 million and the cost is being shared equally between the Severn tidal power group, the Central Electricity Generating Board and my Department.
