HC Deb 11 November 1996 vol 285 c13W
Mr. Morgan

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what consultation he has had with the Director-General of Electricity Supply as regards the black-out risk throughout south and mid-Wales on Sunday 20 October. [3108]

Mr. Page

The National Grid Company kept my Department and the Director General of Electricity Supply fully informed of the problems at Aberthaw power station referred to—which took place on 12 to 14 October and not on 20 October—and discussed with us the action which was taken to ensure that the electricity supply to south and mid-Wales was maintained. My Department and the director general will continue to keep the situation under review.
