HC Deb 22 March 1991 vol 188 c246W
Mr. Salmond

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what assessment he made of the likely impact on the Scottish electricity industry of being bound to the nuclear energy agreement for a period of 15 years.

Mr. Allan Stewart

The nuclear energy agreement is central to the privatisation of the two Scottish electricity companies, securing abundant supplies of baseload nuclear power at stable market-related prices for the next 15 years.
