HL Deb 04 February 1971 vol 314 c1354

LORD MONTAGU OF BEAULIEU had given Notice of his intention to ask Her Majesty's Government—

  1. (1) when the Fawley power station will be in full operation;
  2. (2) what was the original estimated cost of building the station;
  3. (3) what will be the final cost.

The noble Lord said: My Lords, since this Question was put on the Order Paper I have been informed that this is not a matter for a Parliamentary Question, but one which is within the day-to-day responsibility of the Central Electricity Generating Board. In view of the fact that over £100 million of taxpayers' money is involved here, I will ask the question in the right quarter and hope that I shall get the right answer.
