Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many British nuclear reactors have been sold abroad as compared with the number of United States pressurised water reactors and boiling water reactor systems; and whether it is the intention of the Government to collaborate in nuclear technology and development primarily with European companies or United States enterprises.
