§ 57. Mr. Skinner
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether, in view of the Government Working Party report "Nuisance or Nemesis", submitted to the Stockholm Conference on 10W Pollution, he will leave all matters relating to the type of future power stations only to the Central Electricity Generating Board.
§ Mr. Tom Boardman
No. The CEGB's proposals for new power stations require statutory approval in respect of capital investment, siting and environment, and, as necessary, nuclear safety. I have no plans for changing this situation.
