The Prime Minister referred to the realistic approach in Tokyo to the oil crisis. Would she like to take this opportunity to explain the realism of pretending that fuel prices are not part of the cost of living, in view of the fact that it has been reported that a suggestion has been made that increases in fuel prices should not be regarded as part of the retail price index? Before the Prime Minister goes overboard in favour of nuclear power, would she like to take all reasonable steps to persuade my constituents in the Torness area that the advanced gas-cooled reactor is not an unacceptable safety hazard?
