HC Deb 04 November 1965 vol 718 c244W
Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

asked the Minister of Power what steps are being taken to make the operating experience of the Central Electricity Generating Board available to prospective purchasers of British Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor power stations.

Mr. Frederick Lee

The Central Electricity Generating Board already makes available its considerable experience of operating the many gas-cooled reactors used in the first nuclear power programme and this will be of great value to potential users of the advanced gas-cooled reactor. It is expected that information about the operating experience of Dungeness "B", the first of the Board's stations incorporating an advanced gas-cooled reactor, will be published when it is brought into service after 1970. In the meantime, the Board has published brochures giving technical and economic information about Dungeness "B" and these have been widely distributed in this country and abroad.
