asked the Minister of Fuel and Power the number and location of new district heating schemes planned in conjunction with electric power developments.
Three; at Spondon, Warrington and Stepney.
Will the right hon. Gentleman discuss with his colleagues the possibility of providing special financial assistance beyond the resources of the electricity industry for the development of these schemes?
No. I think it is much better that this matter should proceed as at present, on the basis of proper commercial negotiation.
