HC Deb 31 January 1956 vol 548 c97W
73. Mr. Moss

asked the Lord Privy Seal what proportion of expenditure upon nuclear research and development is devoted to peaceful and civil purposes.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Much of the expenditure on research and development in nuclear energy is likely to help forward both the peaceful and military applications of atomic energy; and it is therefore impossible to estimate the proportion which the hon. Member requests.
