HC Deb 16 February 1973 vol 850 cc450-1W
Mr. Hicks

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is now able to announce his decision relating to the application of the Central Electricity Generating Board to build an oil-fired power station at Inswork Point, Mill-brook, following receipt of the inspector's report; and, if not, when he hopes to be able to make an announcement.

Mr. Emery

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.
