§ Mr. John Moore
In that reply I said that information on grants which have been made available is published quarterly in the Department of Industry's journalBritish Business, copies of which are available in the Library of the House. As to the further proposals for conversion, I understood from the NCB that it had received over 1,000 inquiries regarding conversion to coal, and replacement and extension of existing coal-fired plant.16W
Details of these proposals are a matter of commercial confidence between the board and the firms concerned, and are not available to my Department. I am asking the chairman of the NCB to write to the hon. Member.
