HC Deb 23 June 1993 vol 227 c174W
Mr. O'Neill

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement on the progress of his Department in establishing a Renewables Order for Northern Ireland.

Mr. Atkins

The Department of Economic Development intends to ask NIE plc to organise a competitive tender to secure generation capacity from plant using renewable sources of energy, with a view to making a non-fossil fuel order. The necessary arrangements for the tender competition are being finalised at present and I hope to make a further statement in the near future.
