§ Mr. Palmer
asked the Minister of Power when details of the design and cost of the nuclear power station Dungeness B will be available.
§ Mr. Frederick Lee
I have been glad to learn that further examination by the Central Electricity Generating Board has confirmed the Board in their initial judgment that the advanced gas-cooled reactor system in the successful tender shows clear economic and other advantages over the alternative systems. The Board are issuing tomorrow a full statement giving economic comparisons between the alternatives and a description of the main features of the accepted design. I have arranged for copies to be available in the Library. As I have already announced, the Government has put in hand a comprehensive review of the nuclear power programme for 1970 to 1975.
