HC Deb 30 May 1963 vol 678 cc170-1W
56. Mr. Pentland

asked the President of the Board of Trade when the hon. Member for Chester-le-Street can expect a reply to his letter to him of 7th May inquiring whether the Central Electricity Generating Board would benefit from the new standard grants announced in the Budget if it were to build a new power station in the County of Durham.

Mr. Erroll

As soon as the remaining stages of the Local Employment Bill have been considered by the House. An Amendment to the Bill tabled by the right hon. Member for Battersea, North (Mr. Jay) and other hon. Members raises the same point, and I do not wish to anticipate any statement 1 may make to the House when that Amendment is considered.
