HC Deb 03 November 1989 vol 159 c373W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if he will cancel plans to build the Hinkley Point C pressurised water reactor station.

Mr. Michael Spicer

The CEGB's application for my right hon. Friend's consent to construct a PWR nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C is currently the subject of a public inquiry.

My right hon. Friend will wish to consider the inspector's report before deciding whether or not to grant his consent to the CEGB's application.

The construction of new nuclear power stations in England and Wales is a matter for the CEGB.
