§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Power (Mr. Reginald Freeson)
Dual-firing of power stations was discussed by the then Minister of Power with the nationalised fuel industries during the Fuel Policy Review. The Government's policy on conversion of coal-fired power stations to other fuels was stated in paragraph 99 of the Fuel Policy White Paper (Cmnd. 3438).
§ Mr. Freeson
As the hon. Member will appreciate, this is a matter for the Central Electricity Generating Board to consider and on which to make the necessary applications to us.
