HC Deb 05 February 1998 vol 305 cc784-5W
Mr. Breed

To ask the President of the Board of Trade when she expects the review of utility regulation to present its findings; and if she will make a statement. [25694]

Mr. Battle

I hope to be in a position to publish the conclusions of the Review on utility regulation in a Green Paper in the near future. Following publication, there will be a period of consultation during which all interested parties will have the opportunity to submit representations on any proposals for change. I do not propose to make a statement in advance of publication.
