HC Deb 19 November 1973 vol 864 cc307-8W
Mr. Dell

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what royalties are payable to the Atomic Energy Authority.

Mr. Emery

Royalties are payable to the Atomic Energy Authority in respect of two Magnox power stations built overseas. A levy is also charged on fuel supplied for the Magnox power stations built for the United Kingdom electricity generating boards, for the two overseas stations and for the stations at Calder Hall and Chapelcross owned by British Nuclear Fuels Ltd. In addition the authority receives payments in respect of patents and licences arising from its research and development activities. The total value of royalties received in 1972–73 was £721,000.
