HC Deb 27 July 1988 vol 138 c309W
28. Mr. Darling

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has made an assessment of the likely demand for shares in a privatised electricity industry from(a) private individuals resident in Scotland and (b) institutional and corporate investors.

Mr. Lang

We are giving careful consideration to this aspect of the privatisation, and are confident that individual and institutional investors in Scotland will take up a significant proportion of the shares.
