HC Deb 16 October 1969 vol 788 c125W
Mr. Kelley

asked the Minister of Technology what is the estimated loss of revenue arising from the need to operate Magnox nuclear power stations at low capacity because of the corrosion of parts of the reactors recently discovered.

Mr. Harold Lever

As stated in the reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Portsmouth, West (Mr. Judd) on 13th October, the 6 Magnox stations affected by oxidation are still in continuous operation at above their design load factor. As the Board are confident of maintaining supplies there should be no loss of revenue.—[Vol. 788, Col.38.]
