HC Deb 01 April 1969 vol 781 c73W
56. Mr. Kelley

asked the Minister of Power what estimate he has made of the number of miners required to supply coal for the second stage of Drax Power Station, basing his figures on present production trends.

Mr. Mason

A meaningful estimate cannot be made on the information at present available.

57. Mr. Kelley

asked the Minister of Power what facilities are being provided in the construction of the first power station at Drax capable of being used in a second power station on that site.

Mr. Mason

The power station is laid out to have a possible ultimate capacity of 4000 MW, of which the station now building represents 1980 MW. I am asking the Chairman of the C.E.G.B. to write to my hon. Friend about the facilities.
