asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will report progress on the work to establish the feasibility of generating wave power; and what he expects the next phase of development will commence.

Friend the Member for Coatbridge and Airdrie (Mr. James Dempsey).—[Vol. 910, c. 150–1.] Work has progressed satisfactorily and the concept continues to show promise.
