HC Deb 10 July 1963 vol 680 c1241
36. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what consideration he has now given to the recommendation of the Mackenzie Committee about a major extension to the new power station at present being built at Dundee.

Mr. Noble

As recommended by the Committee the North Board has examined this site and has made certain proposals for its development. These are now being considered.

Mr. Thomson

While thanking the Minister for that Answer, can he say whether the statement recently made by the South Board with regard to the new generating station in any way cuts across his consideration of establishing this big extension at Dundee?

Mr. Noble

Obviously the problem of new stations has to be considered in the light of the demands of Scotland as a whole.
