HC Deb 18 December 1989 vol 164 c110W
72. Mr. Livsey

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make a statement on Government support for flue gas desulphurisation equipment.

Mr. Michael Spicer

The Government are committed to ensuring that the sulphur dioxide reduction requirements of the EC large combustion plants directive are met. The retrofitting of power stations with flue gas desulphurisation equipment will assist in achieving this. The choice of equipment to be used is a matter for the industry itself.
