asked the Secretary of State for Energy what were the numbers of staff of the CEGB and of the SSEB, re- spectively, per megawatt of generation capacity in 1960 and 1974.
The number of CEGB generation employees at conventional steam-raising power stations in 1974 was 0·68 per megawatt of generation sent out as compared with 1·48 employees in 1960. In 1974, 0·99 persons were employed at nuclear power stations per megawatt of generation sent out as compared with 1·51 employees in 1964, the earliest year for which nuclear power station figures are published. I am sure my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland would be glad to arrange for the information to be provided in respect of the SSEB.
