HC Deb 06 February 1968 vol 758 cc55-6W
45. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Minister of Power if he will now review the national fuel plan, in view of the decision to site an aluminium smelter at Invergordon, together with a coal-fired power station.

Mr. Freeson

No. No decisions have yet been taken on either the siting or the choice of fuel for any aluminium smelter. Even if they had, the factors involved would not of themselves warrant review of national fuel policy.

Sir G. Nabarro

asked the Minister of Power whether he will make a statement concerning republication of the White Paper on Fuel Policy.

Mr. Marsh

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to similar Questions earlier today.
