HC Deb 11 March 1957 vol 566 c124W
19. Mr. Osborne

asked the Paymaster-General by how much he estimates that the national fuel requirements will have increased by 1965, and from what sources he expects to get this additional power after allowing for the equivalent 18 million tons of coal or 5,000 megawatts from his planned atomic power stations.

Mr. Maudling

By 50 to 60 million tons of coal equivalent a year, the difference being met by increased production of coal and increased imports of oil.
