HC Deb 27 November 1950 vol 481 c114W
Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Minister of Works whether he will publish a list of the 13 buildings and part of another building licensed in London during the past year for Government office accommodation; and the amount of the licence in each case.

Mr. Stokes

The list is as follows:

are in close contact with all the research establishments concerned, and I understand that very satisfactory progress is being made. The British Electricity Authority has substantially improved the efficiency of generation at steam power stations; this improvement is comparable with any achieved in other countries, and I am glad to say that it is likely to continue.

With regard to the wind-power experiment in the Orkneys, instruments have been in use for a long time at the chosen site to determine the wind conditions throughout the year. A windmill to produce up to 100 kilowatts of electricity has been constructed for the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board, and will be installed on the site as soon as weather permits. Meanwhile an experimental tower has been erected to carry instruments for certain of the observations.
