HC Deb 12 November 1971 vol 825 c283W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry when he proposes to announce the result of the Central Electricity Generating Board's application to build a nuclear power station at Connah's Quay, Flintshire; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ridley:

I cannot say at present. The inspectors who held the public inquiry to consider the C.E.G.B.'s proposal to construct a nuclear station at Connah's Quay have not yet completed their report. When it is received it will need to be studied, and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales consulted, before a decision on the board's application can be taken.
