§ Mr. Benn:
The growing volume of current exploration work in various parts of the world should result in sufficient uranium being forthcoming at reasonable prices for the U.K. and other nuclear power programmes. The effect of a rise in price of uranium on nuclear power costs is comparatively small; for example, a price variation of 10 per cent. would mean a change of about 1¼ per cent. in generating costs for a typical advanced gas-cooled reactor station.
