HC Deb 10 March 1958 vol 584 cc14-5W
70. Mr. Edward Evans

asked the Paymaster-General whether he has considered the representations made to him in regard to the establishment of a nuclear power station in the Reydon district of East Suffolk; and what conclusion he has come to.

Sir I. Horobin

The Central Electricity Generating Board has not yet applied for my noble Friend's consent to a nuclear power station in East Suffolk, though I understand it is investigating a number of possible sites. If he receives such an application my noble Friend must decide in the light of all the circumstances, including any representations received for or against the proposal, whether to give consent to the construction of a station on the site chosen by the Generating Board. He cannot, therefore, reach a conclusion on representations at the present stage.
