HC Deb 07 March 1988 vol 129 c24W
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.
