HC Deb 16 July 1964 vol 698 c274W
37. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development if he is satisfied that graphite moderated nuclear reactors for electricity generation can be sold abroad at competitive prices; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. du Cann

The competitiveness of different types of reactor depends on such factors as—capital and running costs and suitability for local conditions. I think there should be reasonable prospects for the sale abroad of graphite moderated reactors.
