HC Deb 26 October 1972 vol 843 cc422-3W
Mr. Sillars

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what are the total capital costs incurred at Longannet power station to the latest available date; and on how many days in 1972 it has failed to work to its full present potential capacity.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

The capital cost up to 30th September, 1972, is £116 million. I am informed by the South of Scotland Electricity Board that the station has not yet been run to its potential capacity of 2,400 MW.
