HC Deb 07 November 1978 vol 957 c127W
Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he will take action to ensure that the Central Electricity Generating Board's contract for new turbine generators will be allocated so as to prevent the demise of the turbine generator industry in Trafford Park, Manchester.

Mr. Eadie

The Government are concerned about the problems facing the power plant industry and are reviewing the position with the electricity supply industry. The placing of contracts is, however, a matter for the CEGB.
