HC Deb 01 March 1978 vol 945 c262W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make further statements of his policy on the commercial-scale fast reactor I and the decision to authorise two advanced gas-cooled reactors, in the light of the recent announcement by Sir John Hill, Chairman of the Atomic Energy Authority, that no nuclear power programme makes sense unless it included fast breeder reactors.

Mr. Eadie

I have nothing to add to my right hon. Friend's statement of 25th January on thermal reactor policy. The Government have fast reactor policy under review and no decisions have yet been taken.
