§ 137. Mr. Peter Freeman
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power in connection with the proposed new electricity generating station at Fifoots Point, Newport, when the first part of the plant will be started and the cost; what areas it will serve and what manpower will be involved; and 2160 whether he is satisfied that all the necessary material, equipment and labour will be available for it to be completed promptly, in view of the need of increased electricity in this area.
§ Mr. Shinwell
I am informed that the Electricity Commissioners have not yet received any application for consent to the erection of a power station at Newport and I cannot therefore give the information asked by my hon. Friend.
