HC Deb 15 March 1976 vol 907 c383W
36. Mr. Rost

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what discussions he has had with the Central Electricity Generating Board on its power station closure programme.

Mr. Eadie

The Central Electricity Generating Board's power station closure programme announced on 16th October 1975 was agreed by management and unions at national level. I have emphasised to the Chairman of the Board my concern that closures should continue to be dealt with sympathetically and decisions reached which meet our widest national interest.
