asked the Secretary of State for Energy if, when he next meets the chairman of the Central Electricity Generating Board, he proposes to discuss the conversion of oil-fired generating capacity to coal.

It is for the CEGB to consider whether, in the light of all the relevant factors, it should invest in the conversion of any of its oil-fired stations to coal. I will discuss with the chairman any specific proposals made by the board.
