HC Deb 01 July 1991 vol 194 c37W
Mr. Ieuan Wyn Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if he has any plans to remove the responsibility for developing a United Kingdom wave energy programme from the Atomic Energy Authority.

Mr. Moynihan

No. Responsibility rests with my Department for the general research development and demonstration programme for renewable energy technologies; this includes wave energy. The energy technology support unit, based at the Harwell laboratory of the Atomic Energy Authority, is responsible for the day-to-day management of the programme and reports directly to my Department on the performance of its work.
