HC Deb 30 July 1962 vol 664 c12W
76. Mr. Wainwright

asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science if he will give the names of the universities which have now applied for permission to build a low-power nuclear reactor; and if he will state the universities whose applications have been granted.

Mr. Denzil Freeth

Applications for grants for low-power nuclear reactors have been received by D.S.I.R. from the Imperial College of Science and Technology, and Queen Mary College (both of London University), from Manchester and Liverpool Universities jointly, and from the Scottish Universities and the Queen's University, Belfast, jointly with the Royal College of Science and Technology, Glasgow. A grant has been awarded for the Scottish reactor; a grant is now being made to London University for one reactor; and a grant for Manchester and Liverpool Universities has been approved in principle.
