§ Mr. Tipping
To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will list those individuals and organisations who have responded to his consultation on the Monopolies and Mergers report on British Gas; if he will summarise those views; and if he will place copies of all the submissions received in the Library.
§ Mr. Neil Hamilton
As at 1 November, my Department had received some 91 representations from a variety of companies, organisations, and individuals, covering a wide range of views. As the representations were made in confidence, it is not appropriate to give details, but I expect to be able to indicate the range of views in due course, once they have all been fully assessed and a decision has been taken.
