§ 34. Mr. Ridley
asked the Minister of Technology, in view of the failure of the Atomic Energy Authority to produce civil nuclear reactor designs that are internationally competitive, if he will set up an inquiry to consider how to reform the Atomic Energy Authority.
§ Mr. Benn
The policy of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority is to seek to secure such return, principally by way of royalties, as the market will bear; and as my hon. Friend told the House of 9th May agreement has recently been reached concerning the royalty to be paid by C.E.G.B. on its first A.G.R. stations.
§ Mr. J. H. Osborn
asked the Minister of Technology what plans he has for extending research and development in the atomic energy establishments, beyond 154W that directly connected with atomic energy.
