HC Deb 19 May 2003 vol 405 c532W
Mr. Blizzard

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if she will establish regional targets for renewable energy development within the 10 per cent, national target. [113975]

Mr. Wilson

As stated in the Energy White Paper, we propose to ensure that a strategic approach to energy is developed and implemented in each region. We expect that this strategic approach will include regional targets (such as for renewables and energy efficiency) negotiated between the region and national Government.
