asked the Secretary of State for Energy if there are any plans to develop the site at Inswork Point, Cornwall, for a power station.

I understand that Inswork Point is currently being assessed by the CEGB for its potential as a coal-fired power station development. Consent for an oil-fired station was granted in 1973 although investment approval to go ahead with construction was subsequently refused in 1978 on national energy policy grounds. No application has been made to my right hon. Friend for consent to build a coal-fired station on this site.
