HC Deb 18 October 1968 vol 770 cc188-9W
Mr. Eadie

asked the Minister of Technology why figure 2 on page 2 of the illustrated summary of the Atomic Energy Authority's Annual Report for 1967–68 omits any reference to Hunterston "A" nuclear station; and whether he will give the estimated and actual capital costs per kilowatt.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

The Authority inform me that the chart was reproduced with the Central Electricity Generating Board's permission, from an article dealing with nuclear stations published in May 1968 by a member of the C.E.G.B. staff. Final capital costs for Hunterston "A" were not then available.

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given by my hon. Friend the Minister of State, Scottish Office, to his Question on the estimated and actual capital costs of Hunterston "A" on 3rd July, 1968.—[Vol. 147, c. 231.]
