HC Deb 27 February 1963 vol 672 cc165-6W
43. Dr Stross

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will give a general direction to the London Board to take its base-load power supplies from the Central Electricity Generating Board and to install only cheap stand-by plant for security purposes in order to reduce atmospheric pollution in the London area.

Vice-Admiral Hughes Hallett

No. This is not an appropriate subject for a general direction. We are satisfied, in any case, as are the London Transport Board and their consultants, that the safe and efficient operation of London Transport's deep tube system requires an independent source of supply.
