In respect of (a) the responsibility for deciding whether to grant a lease rests with the Crown Estate and not the Department. We understand that discussions are ongoing but as yet a lease has not been granted. In respect of (b) the Contract for Difference negotiations are commercially sensitive and it is not appropriate for us to comment on the proposals that have been received.
