To ask the Secretary of State for Energy(1) if he will indicate when the last flow chart showing United Kingdom energy flows was produced; and if he intends to issue a new chart with the latest figures;

(2) if he will provide 1988 figures for the information which was provided by the 1983 energy flow chart.

Mr. Parkinson

The last chart showing United Kingdom energy flows was produced in 1987, and was based on data for 1986. The flow chart is produced every three years; the next chart is scheduled for publication in mid-1990. and will be based on data for 1989. The chart is prepared from data published in the annual "Digest of United Kingdom Energy Statistics." The 1989 edition of the digest, containing data for 1988, is scheduled to be published by HMSO on 27 July, and a copy will be available in the House of Commons Library.
