HC Deb 26 June 1989 vol 155 c356W
38. Mr. Hayward

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy how many projects his Department is aware of involving electricity generation from gas-powered turbines.

Mr. Michael Spicer

Almost all the major independent projects known to my Department are proposing to use gas-powered turbines. In addition, the National Power and Power Gen divisions of the CEGB has each recently applied for my consent to construct two gas-fired stations.
