§ 31. Mr. Prior
asked the Minister of Power whether he will consult the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food with a view to carrying out joint experiments in the use of warm water effluent from the nuclear power station at Sizewell for the rearing and fattening of fish in pens or pounds in conjunction with the fishing laboratory at Lowestoft.
§ Mr. John Morris
I understand that the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the White Fish Authority are at present considering the possibilities of using warm water effluents from power stations for this purpose, in consultation with the Central Electricity Generating Board. It is too early to be specific as to where it will be possible to undertake initial experiments.
