§ 78. Mr. Mason
asked the Minister of Power if he will state his estimate of the comparable capital and running costs of the projected advanced gas-cooled reactor, the Canadian deuterium uranium reactor and the United States boiling-water reactor; and if he will give examples of other reactors and their respective costs which he will be considering during his proposed review of nuclear reactors.
§ Mr. Erroll
Adequate estimates of the relative costs of the various alternative types of reactor will be available only when the tenders of British manufacturers are received. The C.E.G.B. are willing to consider tenders for any water-moderated reactor of proved design, provided full supporting evidence is submitted. These would include the pressurised water reactor.
