HC Deb 09 July 1979 vol 970 c17W
26. Mr. Gwilym Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what further developments are taking place in the provision of cross-Channel electricity links; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Norman Lamont

Government approval in principle was given to the Central Electricity Generating Board in August 1978 for the construction of a 2000 MW cross-Channel link with Electricité de France. The CEGB expects to seek final approval this year.
