§ 21. Mr. Ridley
asked the Minister of Power if he will publish a White Paper on the scientific and financial implications of putting power lines underground.
§ Mr. Ridley
Is my right hon. Friend aware that there is an ever-growing volume of apprehension in the country about the multiplicity of power lines now being put up, and does he realise that it would be a help if we could have a complete and up-to-date picture of the present state of scientific advance and know the financial gap which exists between underground and overhead wires? It would be most helpful if my right hon. Friend could give more information.
