HC Deb 16 May 1977 vol 932 c4W
30. Mr. Jim Lester

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what number of jobs his Department estimates may be saved in the power plant manufacturing industry by bringing forward the ordering of the Drax B power station.

Mr. Cryer

On its own, an order for Drax B may have little effect on long-term employment in the industry, stability for which is likely to be achieved only by a series of measures based on those proposed in the CPRS report.
