§ Yvette Cooper
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is yet in a position to make his decision on Yorkshire CoGen Ltd's application to construct a combined heat and power generating station at Castleford in West Yorkshire. 
§ Mr. Battle
On Thursday 3 December 1998 I granted consent under section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989 to Yorkshire CoGen Ltd's application for my consent to construct a 56 MW combined heat and power generating station at the Hickson and Welch chemical works at Castleford.
I have placed a copy of the decision letter in the Library of the House.
