asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish in the Official Report a copy of his reply to the letter from the secretary of the Electricity Consultative Council for the south of Scotland district dated 25 February 1985.
My Department replied on 11 March as follows:
"Thank you for your letter of 25 February conveying your Council's views on the Government's proposals for Nationalised Industries Legislation. I have noted the Council's views, and they will be taken into account in the Government's consideration of the results of the consultation exercise. You mentioned in particular the possibility of further proposals about the operation of Nationalised Industry Consumer Councils and, as you are aware, a further consultation document has now been issued on that subject."
