HC Deb 21 March 1963 vol 674 c88W
65. Mr. Hocking

asked the Minister of Power whether he will make a statement upon the proposed new plant for the manufacture of smokelss fuel, which is to be built in the Coventry area by the National Coal Board, indicating when it is hoped production will commence; and what will be the productive capacity.

Mr. Peyton

Under the Board's provisional plans production would begin in time for the winter of 1965–66 and would be expanded by stages thereafter to a capacity of 600,000 tons a year.
