HC Deb 17 June 1963 vol 679 cc3-4W
Mr. Lubbock

asked the Lord Privy Seal what measures of further co-operation have been agreed between Her Majesty's Government and Euratom: and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Heath

The United Kingdom/Euratom Continuing Committee for Cooperation met at Ministerial level on May 20th at Ispra in Italy, and examined the various fields in which co-operation in the peaceful uses of atomic energy could prove mutually advantageous.

Co-operation between the United Kingdom and Euratom will be continued in the Joint Working Group of officials at technical level, in matters of common interest. These include fast reactor research and the supply of fissile materials, biology, studies of the economic outlook for nuclear power, the re-processing of different types of fuel and the exchange of personnel.

In addition, day-to-day contact with the Euratom Community is maintained by the United Kingdom Delegation to the European Communities in Brussels.
