There are considerable exchanges between the electricity industry here and in France, and the possibility of increasing them is borne in mind. If my hon. Friend has any particular suggestions for increasing cooperation, I would be glad to look into them.
Would my hon. Friend not agree that co-operation between the French and British electricity supply industries, which are both nationalised, is just as practical and possible as cooperation between the two countries on, say, aircraft construction?
I accept from my hon. Friend that these exchanges of information are extremely valuable. Indeed, the other day I went to look at certain gas industry establishments in France.
