HC Deb 07 June 1976 vol 912 cc501-2W
Mr. Dodsworth

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what contact he has with the International Atomic Energy Agency concerning the British Government's attitude to co-operation in the field of nuclear technology.

Mr. Benn

I met the Director General of the IAEA when he visited the United Kingdom at the Government's invitation in July 1975.

The United Kingdom maintains a permanent representative at the IAEA and is also a member of the governing board.

Close and frequent contact between United Kingdom Government officials and the agency ensures that the Government's position on all relevant nuclear subjects is made known to the agency.

The Government favour close co-operation with the agency.
