§ 96. Mr. Marples
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether it would be possible for the proposed Poplar power station which will generate 300,000 kilowatts to be extended to give increased capacity in order to meet possible increases in demand.
§ Mr. Gaitskell
The ultimate planned capacity of the new Poplar generating station will now be 315,000 kilowatts. I am informed that site limitations preclude any extension beyond that figure.
