asked the Secretary of State for Energy what discussions he has had with his colleagues on the EEC Council of Ministers regarding alternative sources of energy.

Discussions with my EEC colleagues have confirmed that all member States attach importance to studying and developing the potential of alternative sources of energy. Such discussions also led to adoption on 12th June of Regulation EEC no. 1302/78 concerning financial support for projects to exploit alternative energy sources. Such support may be granted following further proposals from the Commission and decisions by a future Council.
