I very much agree with my hon. Friend. British Gas is competing and winning around the world, and a number of our water utilities are doing exactly the same. Our electricity utilities, particularly the generating companies, are investing effectively, and that will bring dividends to the United Kingdom and provide significant employment in supplying companies in the UK and to individuals who are directly employed. That is a good result for Britain, and the Opposition should not drag Britain down in their approach to this important issue.
