HC Deb 16 July 1962 vol 663 c23
23. Mr. A. Roberts

asked the Minister of Power what recent general directions he has given to the Gas Council concerning the underground storage of gas.

Mr. Wood

None, Sir.

Mr. Roberts

May we have the Minister's assurance that, before any gas storage takes place in the north of England, we shall take advantage of the scheme which was submitted to store gas under the City of Winchester?

Mr. Wood

I shall take into consideration what the hon. Gentleman has said. I hope to make an announcement on this subject quite soon.
