HC Deb 04 July 1990 vol 175 c607W
15. Mr. Eadie

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what information his Department has on the progress of installation of flue gas desulphurisation equipment in Scotland, and if he will make a statement.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

I understand there are no plans at present to install flue gas desulphurisation equipment in combustion plants in Scotland.

The level of emissions from power stations in Scotland is already very low in comparison with the major base-load coal-fired stations in England and Wales.
