§ 33. Mr. D. E. Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what is his Department's latest estimate of the continued life of Magnox power stations; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Goodlad
The Central Electricity Generating Board has, for planning and accounting purposes, adopted an assumption of a 30-year life for each Magnox station. On the basis of current assessments the board expects actual operating lives to be at least as long as this.
