HC Deb 22 May 1972 vol 837 cc252-3W
Mr. Hicks

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he has yet received the Inspector's report following the public inquiry resulting from the application of the Central Electricity Generating Board to construct an oil-fired power station at Insworke, Mill-brook; and when he hopes to make his decision on this proposal.

Mr. Tom Boardman

Yes, but I cannot anticipate when a decision will be made. It is a long report which will need careful study and consultation with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment.
