Mr. John Evans

asked the Secretary of State for Energy how much coal the Central Electricity Generating Board imports and from which countries; and what percentage of total coal imports this represents.

Mr. Eadie

According to figures provided by the CEGB, imported coal delivered to CEGB power stations in 1975 came from the following countries:

Country tons
Australia 1,805
Canada 307
USA 1,200
Total 3,312

This total represents about 66 per cent. of total imports of coal during 1975.
