HC Deb 07 November 1979 vol 973 c197W
26. Mr. Booth

asked the Minister of Transport whether the British Transport Docks Board has informed him of any proposals to store radioactive nuclear waste at Barrow docks in connection with the expansion of fuel processing at Wind-scale by British Nuclear Fuels Limited; and whether such a proposal has been approved.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

No, it has not. The traffic through Barrow docks is, in any event, spent irradiated fuel and not nuclear waste, but there are no proposals to establish storage facilities at Barrow docks for this or any other radioactive material.
