Mr. Blair

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what is his current estimate of the non-fossil fuel levy for the year 1989–90 under his privatisation plans.

The initial rate of the fossil fuel levy will depend on the outcome of contract negotiations for fossil and non-fossil generating capacity which are currently under way. The rate will be announced towards the end of this year.
