pursuant to his reply[Official Report, 8th February; Vol. 943, c. 561], gave the following further information:

I am now informed that the Central Electricity Generating Board carried out certain "specified operations" as defined by Section 43 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1971 on the site of the proposed AGR station at Sizewell in 1970, is, within five years from the date on which the planning permission for the development was deemed to have been granted in 1969. Accordingly, the planning permission remains in force and the conditions calling for consultations with the local planning authority as to the external appearance of the station and other matters still apply.
