Environment (Scotland) (24 Oct 1995)

Roseanna Cunningham: In Scotland, we currently export more power than we use.

Environment (Scotland) (24 Oct 1995)

Roseanna Cunningham: No. I have given way frequently in the past 15 minutes. If the hon. Gentleman does not mind, I will continue, and make the point about the safety of transportation on land.
