France to start adopting EU gas directive in October

Sep 05, 2002 02:00 AM

The French government is to begin steps in October to adopt the European Union's (EU) gas directive into French law, according to its energy officials. The text is being prepared by parliament's senate economic affairs committee for a first examination in the senate in October, to be followed later by debate in the national assembly.

French legislation should have been adopted for opening of the European gas market in August 2000, a delay for which France has been condemned by the European court of justice.
A previous bill prepared by the former (socialist) government was held up constantly by opposition from socialists, communists and trade unions. It never reached parliament, even though its text called for minimal opening of the French market.
