HC Deb 01 December 1964 vol 703 c36W
38. Mr. Palmer

asked the Minister of Power if he will make a statement on the further development of the British nuclear power programme; and what decision has been reached on the type of reactor to be used.

Mr. Frederick Lee

The Government propose to keep this matter under review, as envisaged in the White Paper on the Second Nuclear Power Programme (Cmnd. 2335). The question of the type of reactor to be included will be considered, with the authorities mainly concerned, when the results of the inquiry for tenders for the first station in the programme are available next year.
