HC Deb 19 June 1980 vol 986 c635W
Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what percentage of Orkney electricity is generated by gas.

Mr. Younger

I am informed that since July 1979, when gas of an acceptable composition first became available, the North of Scotland Hydro Electric Board's 3.2 MW gas turbine at Flotta has supplied 10 per cent. of the units generated on the Orkney system.
