HC Deb 30 October 1957 vol 575 c66W
98. Mr. Peart

asked the Postmaster-General how the atomic energy programme will be affected by Government policy to restrict public investment.

Mr. Maudling

As my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer informed the House yesterday the re-phasing of the nuclear power programme may involve the postponement by one year of the date by which we complete our programme of 5,000 to 6,000 megawatts of nuclear capacity.
