§ Mr. Peter Morrison
As the hon. Member knows from my discussions with him, an application for inclusion in the initial tranche of the non-fossil fuel obligation has been made by the Mersey Barrage Company. This application is being considered and discussions are taking place with the company.
The Mersey barrage project can be considered for inclusion in the non-fossil fuel obligation only if agreement is reached between area boards and the company on a suitable contract and the project is commercially viable.
