HC Deb 16 March 1994 vol 239 cc926-7

Motion made, and Question proposed, That the draft Nuclear Installations (Increase of Operators' Limits of Liability) Order 1994, which was laid before this House on 16th February, be approved—[Mr. Eggar].

6.30 pm
Mr. Martin O'Neill (Clackmannan)

The Minister seems almost to have pulled off a three-card trick in that opponents of the nuclear industry will welcome recognition of an increase in liabilities and those in favour of the nuclear industry will recognise that it is an upgrading to take account of inflation. In that respect, everybody concerned with the nuclear industry will be satisfied. To that extent, we must congratulate the Minister.

Question put and agreed to.
