§ Mr. Morgan
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what discussions he has had with the chairman of Nuclear Electric concerning the impact of the deal with British Nuclear Fuels Ltd. announced on 4 September on the future levels of the nuclear levy.
§ Mr. Heathcoat-Amory
None. The "fixed price contracts" between NE and BNFL will have no impact on the future level of the levy, which is largely determined by movements in the retail prices index and the value of leviable sales.
