When can the House express its disdain and contempt for the rip-off decision made by a gullible Government in agreeing to buy the dearest electricity in the world from a French company and guaranteeing that price for 35 years?

May we debate this, to address the continuing rip-off of the taxpayer for the next 50 years?
