HC Deb 07 February 1985 vol 72 c629W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what is his assessment of the extra employment which could be derived from combined heat and power schemes in British cities; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Hunt

Energy Paper No. 53 gave estimates of the total labour input required for the installation of combined heat and power district heating in nine selected cities. From these it may be calculated that about 3,000 jobs might be created for a 12 to 15-year period by the installation of CHP-DH in all nine cities.
