asked the Minister of Transport the present position concerning the Battersea electric power station; and whether he has received any further report on the matter?

I understand that the London Power Company hope to complete early in March the experiments with the full-sized washing plant referred to in my answer on the 29th January, and will then submit a further report.

May I ask whether the work is still proceeding on the original site of the Battersea Power Station?

The sanction given in respect of one-third of the station during the time when the right hon. and gallant Member was Minister of Transport is proceeding. The question in dispute is whether any further sections of the station will be allowed to be erected.

Can the hon. Gentleman say when he will be able to proceed with this work?
