HC Deb 09 July 1979 vol 970 c18W
28. Mr. Stoddart

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he has completed his consultation on the ruling of the Court of Justice of the European Communities dated 14 November 1978 in respect of article 103 of the European Atomic Energy Community Treaty concerning the ownership and movement of fissile materials, the defence of nuclear establishments and agreements between the United Kingdom and other countries consuming fissile materials; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Howell

The ruling of the Court of Justice of 14 November 1978 (Euratom 1/78) raises issues which are complex and require careful study; the Government are still considering these.
