Neither I nor my officials have had any discussions with Wrexham county borough council on any proposal to construct a gas fired power station on the Wrexham industrial estate.

All proposals for funding under the CCS demonstration programme will need to meet the objectives and selection criteria for the programme.

We are working on the detailed design of the programme, including the objectives and selection criteria, and are aiming to provide further information by the end of the year.
