asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning if, in view of the concern that is being expressed at the long delay of the report concerning the site of the power station at Keipur, Durham, and as the development committees in the area are becoming anxious with regard to the letting of future sites in the same vicinity, he will expedite the publication of the report.
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply to the hon. Member for Gateshead (Mr. Magnay) on 8th February, of which I am sending him a copy and to which I have, at present, nothing to add.
The public inquiry did disclose certain matters on which further information was necessary, and these inquiries have proceeded and have taken rather longer than was expected. I hope soon to be able to make an announcement on the matter.
