HC Deb 22 April 1975 vol 890 c291W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what was the contribution made by nuclear energy to the energy requirements of the United Kingdom, expressed as a percentage of the total, in 1960, 1965, 1970 and 1974; and what is his assessment of the likely proportion in 1975.

Mr. Eadie

The historic data required are as follows:

Per cent.
1960 0.3
1965 2.0
1970 2.9
1974 3.6

There is likely to be a small increase in 1975, to around 4 per cent., but an accurate forecast cannot be made at this stage.
