HC Deb 16 May 1968 vol 764 c283W
Q8. Mr. Rose

asked the Prime Minister if he will consider discussions with the European Economic Community and the European Free Trade Association countries about the possibility of a European nuclear programme for the civil development of nuclear energy.

The Prime Minister

We have been collaborating for many years with our friends in both the European Free Trade Association and the European Economic Community on the development of nuclear reactors through the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Halden and Dragon joint reactor projects. Currently, in the European Nuclear Energy Agency, we are examining with the same countries whether, and if so how, our common interests might be served by collaboration on the development of a more advanced reactor type.
