To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make a statement on the funding of alternative energy projects in Cornwall.

The Cornwall Energy Project by Cornwall County Council; The Geothermal Hot Dry Rock Project by the Camborne School of Mines;
The Proposed Wind Farm at Cold Northcott by the Central Electricity Generating Board.
