Mr. Byers

To ask the President of the Board of Trade, pursuant to his answer of 6 June,Official Report, column 66, if he will identify the areas covered in the draft material sent on 27 January and the reasons for sending this material to Amerada Hess Gas Ltd. and no other company. [28087]

Mr. Eggar

The draft licence material covered technical matters relating to gas shippers. It did not relate to gas suppliers or consumer issues. The material was sent to Amerada Hess Gas Ltd. because the company was judged to have the appropriate expertise to assist DTI at that stage.
