HC Deb 09 July 1968 vol 768 c49W
67. Mr. Eadie

asked the Minister of Technology if he is satisfied that supplies of uranium will be adequate for the present nuclear power station programme; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Bray

Yes. The uranium supplies on hand or under contract will meet requirements in full until well into the 1970's and part of requirements up to 1980. The growth of exploration in many parts of the world should result in sufficient uranium being forthcoming at reasonable prices to meet nuclear power programmes and the Atomic Energy Authority assure me that they foresee no difficulty in making additional contracts when this seems desirable.
