Closure Of Thorpe Marsh Power Station

EDM number 2133 in 1992-93, proposed by Kevin Hughes on 09/06/1993.

That this House condemns the decision by National Power to close the Thorpe Marsh Power Station which will result in the loss of over 200 jobs and will seriously affect the chances for survival of both Bentley and Hatfield collieries; believes that the closure has been brought forward because of the increased use of gas fired power stations and the guaranteed market for nuclear generated power along with the fact that the Government has not got, and shows no signs of developing, an energy policy; and calls for the President of the Board of Trade to intervene and stop the closure which would save the jobs of the power workers and those affected in mining, rail and engineering if the closure goes ahead.

This motion has been signed by a total of 140 MPs.
