Mr. John H. O'sborn
asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will bring forward legislation to seek to provide for regulation of contracts between the British Gas Corporation and industrial users, and to provide for the publication of the terms of such contracts.
Mr. David Howell
No. The regulation of contracts for the sale of gas is a matter for the British Gas Corporation. The terms of individual contracts are commercially confidential and it would be inappropriate to publish them.
