§ 11. Mr. Ronnie Campbell
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what consultations he has had with the chairman of the Central Electricity Generating Board regarding the conversion of oil-fired power stations to coal.
§ Mr. Michael Spicer
The CEGB keeps the possibility of conversion from oil to coal-fired power stations under constant review. I understand that the board has concluded that such conversion would be uneconomic at present.
