Motion text

That this House is concerned about the security of supply of energy in the medium term; that the UK's indigenous gas supplies are running down and that it is forecast to be a net importer of gas from 2006; is further concerned that the coal industry is under threat from environmental constraints, that a significant amount of coal burned now is imported; that the present renewables target, which is only 4.9 per cent., is barely being met; and that the decommissioning of nuclear power stations will begin in 2008 yet the Government refuses to make a decision on the future of the nuclear power industry; and call upon the Government to open a full and transparent debate on the future of UK energy supplies.
