To ask the Secretary of State for Energy when he last met the chairman of British Gas; and what matters were discussed.

My right hon. Friend and I met the chairman of British Gas last month when we discussed a range of issues of mutual interest.

Will the Minister share with us his forecast, or that of the chairman of British Gas, for the future use of gas over the next 10 years in the generation of electrical power?

As the hon. Gentleman has probably heard my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State say, both in this Question Time and on previous occasions, we believe that the generation of electricity by gas will be on the increase in the next decade.
