Mr. Chris Smith

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what is the value of current assistance provided to British firms to help the development of fuel cell technology; and what forms such assistance takes.

Mr. Eggar

My Department promotes the development of solid oxide and solid polymer fuel cell systems through its advanced fuel cell R and D programme. Under this programme financial assistance is available for appropriate projects and the results are disseminated in order to guide future work. The programme budget for 1993–94 is £1.1 million.
