§ 26. Mr. Ellis Smith
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if the boilers, switch-gear, transformers and all other products that require to be manufactured have been ordered for the turbines already ordered; if they are being given super priority; what is the position with regard to the power stations; and if they will be ready for the plant.
§ Mr. Shinwell
Orders have been placed for boilers, switchgear, transformers, and other equipment required for use with the turbines already on order. High priority in labour and materials is being given. Work on the power station buildings is in hand, and it is expected that they will be ready for the plant.
§ Mr. R. S. Hudson
Can the right hon. Gentleman say why high priority was withdrawn a short time ago?
§ Viscount Hinchingbrooke
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether any orders have been placed in the United States for equipment of this type?
