HC Deb 29 February 1968 vol 759 cc420-1W
Mr. Swain

asked the Minister of Technology how long he estimates it will be before the nuclear reactor at Chapelcross Power Station, shut down since an accident in May, 1967, is in operation again; and what has been the cost of the breakdown in loss of sales.

Mr. Benn:

Remedial work is making good progress but at this stage the Atomic Energy Authority is unable to forecast how long it will take. It is likely to be some months.

The loss of sales up to the end of February, 1968 will be about £0.8 million.
