asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he can make a statement as to the present position of the application of the London Power Company, Limited, to the Electricity Commissioners for consent to the further extension of the Battersea Power Station by the installation of 65,000 kilowatts of generating plant and associated boiler plant.

My right hon. Friends, the Minister of Health, the Minister of Works, and the Minister of Town and Country Planning concur with me that there is no objection to the proposed further extension of the Battersea Power Station, subject to the observance of the same conditions in regard to gas washing as were imposed in connection with previous extensions, and I have informed the Electricity Commissioners accordingly.
