HC Deb 08 November 1976 vol 919 cc40-1W
Mr. Hugh Fraser

asked the Secretary of State for Energy when he will announce guidelines for the British nuclear reactor industry, in view of the now manifest economic and export failure of the currently chosen system known as the steam generating heavy water reactor.

Mr. Benn

I do not accept the premise on which the right hon. Member's Question is based. The Government's decision on the SGHWR remains unaltered while taking stock of progress.
