§ Mr. Ewart
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he can make a statement as to the present position in regard to the proposed application of the London Power Company Limited to the Electricity Commissioners for consent to the further extension of the Battersea power station by the installation of 100,000 kws. of generating plant and associated boiler plant.
§ Mr. Gaitskell
My right hon. Friends the Minister of Health, the Minister of Works and the Minister of Town and Country Planning, concur with me that there is no objection to the proposed further and final extension of the Battersea power station subject to the observance of the same conditions in regard to gas washing as were imposed in connection with previous extensions and I have informed the Electricity Commissioners accordingly.
