asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he proposes to discuss with the National Coal Board plans to implement the productivity scheme in those areas where there was a majority vote in favour.
No. Questions relating to the implementation of productivity
asked the Secretary of State for Energy (1) what is the estimated daily loss of power supplies in kilowatt hours resulting from the present industrial dispute ;(2) how many power stations are affected by the current industrial dispute ; how many consumers have had cuts in power supplies ; and what is the estimated loss of industrial production caused by the disruption.
I am informed by the Electricity Council that the dispute has led to a shortage of capacity of around 20 per cent. at peak demand, resulting in a 15 per cent. level of disconnections.
