HC Deb 23 April 1964 vol 693 cc205-6W
Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when Her Majesty's Government will take a decision regarding further nuclear power stations in Scotland.

Mr. Noble

This will depend on the progress of the Second Nuclear Power Programme, described in the recent White Paper (Cmnd. 2335). When Hunterston is in full commission, nuclear generating capacity will form a larger part of the resources of the South of Scotland Electricity Board than of the Central Electricity Generating Board in England and Wales.
