HC Deb 27 July 1988 vol 138 c288W
Dr. Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what policy considerations underlie(a) his willingness to reply in full to questions on coal imports, by amount and country of source and (b) his unwillingness to give details of amounts and country of source for uranium imports.

Mr. Michael Spicer

In replying to questions about imports, it is my policy to be as open as possible subject to considerations of commercial sensitivity.
