HC Deb 08 November 1983 vol 48 c104W
Mr. Terlezki

asked the Secretary of State for Energy at what state is his consideration of the Severn barrage proposals.

Mr. Giles Shaw

The Government are jointly funding the £500,000 study by the Severn Tidal Power Group (STPG) of the technical and financial viability of a barrage built and operated by the private sector. Its report is expected towards the end of 1984. I have also received a proposal, on which no decision has yet been taken, for a feasibility study of a barrage at a Severn site upstream of that being studied by STPG.

Forward to
