§ LORD SHERFIELD
asked Her Majesty's Government:
When details of the design and cost of the nuclear power station, Dungeness "B", will be available.
§ THE JOINT PARLIAMENTARY UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE, HOME OFFICE (LORD STONHAM)
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 to-morrow 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 my right honourable friend the Minister of Power has already announced, the Government have put in hand a comprehensive review of the nuclear power programme for 1970 to 1975.
House adjourned at nine minutes past nine o'clock.
