Adjournment debate


On 19 January 2010, Conservative frontbencher Liam Fox led a debate on electricity transmission in North Somerset.

Mr Fox discussed the National Grid's plans to erect 150 feet high electricity pylons over 37 miles to link a new power station at Hinkley Point with Avonmouth.

He told MPs that the plans have caused frustration and anxiety among local residents.
