HC Deb 02 August 1962 vol 664 cc143-4W
86. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science how much of the £3,000,000, the allocation of which to research into reactors for merchant ships was announced last December, has now been spent.

Mr. Denzil Freeth

The Atomic Energy Authority tells me that the expenditure for the first seven months of the research programme is approximately £300,000.
