Coal Fired Power Stations: Kingsnorth

Volume 478: debated on Monday 23 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (1) what timetable he has set for making a decision on the application to build a new coal-fired power station at Kingsnorth; and if he will make a statement; (210704)

(2) what representations he has received on the proposed new coal-fired power station at Kingsnorth since February 2008; what response was given in each case; and if he will make a statement.

The Department has received some thousands of representations, most before February 2008 but some afterwards. Individual responses are not sent to each but they will be taken into account by my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State, before he takes his decision on the application. There is no timetable set for this decision taking.
