HC Deb 24 February 1992 vol 204 cc403-4W
Mr. Dobson

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if he will list all the power stations in England and Wales of 300 MW or over which are located in residential areas.

Mr. Wakeham

The table lists those powers stations currently operating in England and Wales of 300 MW or over, with the name of the county in which each is situated. My Department's records do not show which, if any, are located in residential areas: these stations were in many cases constructed many years ago, so that records relating to the grant of consent would not give the information requested.
