HC Deb 10 February 1958 vol 582 c23
34. Mr. A. Roberts

asked the Paymaster-General what alterations have been made in the nuclear power programme and oil contracts in view of the expected increase in the consumption of small coal at the electric power stations.

Sir I. Horobin

The revision of the oil programme is such as will enable the power stations to utilise up to 3 million tons more small coal per annum in the nineteen-sixties. The rephasing of the nuclear programme was necessitated by the revision of the capital investment programme. It will however result in an increased use of small coal of a similar order.
