HC Deb 16 February 1973 vol 850 c446W
Dame Joan Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, in view of the fact that no decision has been made in regard to the power station at Inswork Point and that the contract under the compulsory purchase order for the land on which this power station was to be sited lapsed on 8th February 1973, if he will now make a statement.

Mr. Emery

I have been asked to reply.

I regret that owing to the complexity of the issues in this case it has not yet been possible to reach a decision, but an announcement will be made as soon as possible.

The question of the lapse of the contract for the land is a matter for the parties concerned.
