HC Deb 25 November 1974 vol 882 c8W
44. Mr. Banks

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what progress has been made by Government research, referred to in the report of the Central Policy Review Staff, into the development of electricity production from wind power.

Mr. John Smith

No recommendations on electricity production from wind power were made in the report by the Central Policy Review Staff and no Government funded research is at present being undertaken on this specific subject. However, a study of wind power is being undertaken by my Energy Technology Support Unit at Harwell and I expect to receive a report within a few months.
