HC Deb 03 November 1989 vol 159 c373W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if he will cancel plans for the public inquiry into the proposed Wylfa B pressurised water reactor station.

Mr. Michael Spicer

My right hon. Friend has received formal objections to the CEGB's application for his consent to construct a PWR nuclear power station at Wylfa from both the Isle of Anglesey borough council and the Gwynedd county council. He is therefore obliged to arrange a public inquiry pursuant to section 34(1) of the Electricity Act 1957.
