HC Deb 31 October 1957 vol 575 cc85-6W
Mr. Allaun

asked the Prime Minister what proposals have been made by the Combined Development Agency, representing Great Britain, the United States of America and the Union of South Africa, for the next stage in the development of uranium, following the opening of the Buffelsfontein mine uranium plant near Klerksdorp.

The Prime Minister

The Buffelsfontein Uranium Plant recently opened in South Africa was the final plant to come into commission as a result of the arrangement entered into in 1951 between the South African Atomic Energy Board and the Combined Development Agency representing the United Kingdom and the United States of America. No proposals have been made by the Agency to the Board for further development, but the Agency now has under consideration proposals made by the Board for the supply of additional uranium.
