An Act to confer powers upon National Power PLC and PowerGen plc for the construction of ancillary works in connection with proposed generating stations at Killingholme and for the acquisition of lands and easements or rights for the purposes thereof; and for other purposes.

And whereas by virtue of a scheme made by the Central Electricity Generating Board under the said section 66 (1) certain property of the Board has become vested in the two companies, including an area of land in the parish of North Killingholme in the borough of Glanford in the county of Humberside which has been divided between the two companies:

And whereas to meet requirements for the supply of electricity each of the two companies proposes to construct on the lands vested in that company a gas turbine generating station:

And whereas in operating each of the said generating stations quantities of water will be required for cooling purposes and the most convenient and economical method of obtaining the water will be to abstract it from and subsequently to discharge it into the river Humber:

And whereas it is expedient that each of the two companies should be empowered to acquire lands and easements or rights for the purpose of the construction of the works necessary for the abstraction of water from the river Humber and the subsequent discharge of water into the said river from each of the said generating stations as aforesaid and for other purposes connected therewith:

And whereas it is expedient that the other powers contained in this Act should be conferred on the two companies:

And whereas it is expedient that the other provisions contained in this Act should be enacted:

And whereas the purposes of this Act cannot be effected without the authority of Parliament:

And whereas plans and sections showing the lines and levels of the works by this Act authorised, such plans showing also the lands which may be acquired or used compulsorily under the powers of this Act for or in connection with the said works and the other purposes mentioned in this Act, together with a book of reference to the said plans containing the names of the owners or reputed owners, lessees or reputed lessees, and of the occupiers of all such lands, and describing the same, have been deposited with the proper officer of the Humberside County Council and such plans, sections and book of reference are respectively referred to in this Act as the deposited plans, sections and book of reference:

May it therefore please Your Majesty that it may be enacted, and be it enacted, by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows (that is to say):—
