HC Deb 12 March 1987 vol 112 cc281-2W
Mr. Frank Cook

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what is his Department's current estimate of the number of jobs likely to be created by a substantial wind-power farm generating (a) 10 mw, (b) 100 mw and (c) 1,000 mw.

Mr. David Hunt

The technical and economic feasibility of large-scale electricity generation from wind in the United Kingdom is still being investigated by the Department and it is too early to say how many jobs might be created by the large-scale exploitation of the resource with any certainty.
