HC Deb 25 July 1956 vol 557 cc415-6
46 and 47. Mr. Stokes

asked the Lord Privy Seal (1) how much of the enriched uranium now agreed to be supplied by the United States of America to the Atomic Energy Authority will be passed on or sold to Germany;

(2) how much enriched uranium he expects to receive this year under the amendment to the Atomic Energy Agreement signed in Washington last month; and how much of this material will be used for war weapons.

Major Lloyd-George

I have been asked to reply.

The amendment to our bilateral agreement with the United States of America has only received the necessary Congressional approval within the last few days, and I do not expect that any enriched uranium will be received this year. Materials supplied under the bilateral agreement are not available for use in war weapons or for re-export.
