§ Mr. Alton
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy (1) what advice his Department has given to the electricity supply industry as to the method of flue gas desulphurisation;
(2) what consideration his Department has given to the comparative environmental costs of (a) the regenerative method and (b) the limestone-gypsum method of flue gas desulphurisation.
§ Mr. Baldry
A few representations were received some time ago favouring the regenerative FGD process, but none has been received recently. The choice of FGD process is a matter for the industry.
