As I indicated to the hon. Member on 5th April, it is extremely difficult to make meaningful international comparisons of thermal efficiency. The CEGB is continually seeking ways of increasing the thermal efficiency of its system, and over the past 10 years has achieved an improvement of about 3·3 percentage points. It is confident that by a programme of continuous plant monitoring and modification it will be able to achieve further improvements in the future.
