HC Deb 30 May 1968 vol 765 c270W
Mr. Speed

asked the Minister of Power (1) what have been the results so far of the experimental natural gas firing of boilers at Hams Hall power stations;

(2) what plans he has for the extension of natural gas as a fuel to Hams Hall power stations.

Mr. Freeson

My right hon. Friend understands from the C.E.G.B. that the experimental use of natural gas for one boiler at Hams Hall "C" has established that there are no technical limitations on the use of natural gas in power stations. The success of the experiment has encouraged the Board to apply for my right hon. Friend's consent to convert the remaining five boilers at that station.

Forward to
