HL Deb 19 December 1989 vol 514 c249WA
Lord Hatch of Lusby

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they intend to ensure that "energy prices reflect their true economic costs" (HC Deb., 1st December 1989, col. 451) and whether electricity from nuclear stations will be taken by the grid at price or at cost.

Viscount Ullswater

I cannot add to the answer (HC Deb., col. 451) cited by the noble Lord. The basis upon which Nuclear Electric's electricity prices will be set was explained by the Secretary of State for Energy in another place on 9th November.
