HC Deb 19 February 1996 vol 272 c30W
Mr. Home Robertson

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on the inquiry by Ofgas into the failure of the gas supply in Prestonpans, Lockenzie and Port Seton on 29 December 1995. [15647]

Mr. Eggar

I fully sympathise with the hon. Member's constituents who suffered during the supply failure. The Director General of Gas Supply is rightly looking into the incident and we must await her conclusions. I understand that she hopes to report at the end of February.
