HC Deb 04 December 1995 vol 268 c45W
Mr. Burden

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what assessment he has made of the impact of the promised rebate to domestic consumers, arising from the sale of the national grid, on the collection of the fossil fuel levy; and if any rebate will be leviable. [3390]

Mr. Eggar

The rebate is expected to take the form of a discount in the first quarter of 1996 with a consequent effect on the fossil fuel levy collected in that quarter.
