HC Deb 13 April 1999 vol 329 c38W
Dr. Marek

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if power supplies on St Helena are secure; and if he will make a statement. [80639]

Mr. Tony Lloyd

The current electricity generating capacity on St. Helena can cope with existing demand.

The provision of any further generating capacity that may be needed in the future will be considered as part of the public sector investment programme within the aid framework.
