HC Deb 11 July 1996 vol 281 c284W
Mr. French

To ask the President of the Board of Trade when he intends to publish the results of the evaluation of the clean coal technology research and development programme; and if he will make a statement. [37306]

Mr. Lang

Copies of the evaluation report by an international panel of experts have been placed in the Library of the House.

The independent experts from the United States, Japan and Denmark have conducted a thorough mid-term evaluation and made a number of recommendations with respect to the future direction of the programme. This is a useful report which the Government will have to study very carefully.
