HC Deb 19 June 1972 vol 839 cc9-10W
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 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.
