HC Deb 11 June 1979 vol 968 c43W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Energy why the Westfield Point location, near Barrow-in-Furness has been chosen as the preferred area to bring ashore Morecambe Bay gas; what consideration was given to other sites; and why they were rejected.

Mr. Gray

The selection of the terminal site is the responsibility of the British Gas Corporation. I am asking the chaiman of the Corporation to write to the hon. Member on the matter.
