HC Deb 02 April 1980 vol 982 c289W
Miss Maynard

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied with British Nuclear Fuel's proposal to increase its abstraction of water from Wastwater to 11 million gallons a day.

Mr. Fox

The proposal by British Nuclear Fuels Ltd. to increase its abstraction from Wastwater is one of the schemes under examination at a public inquiry now in progress at the Civic Hall, Whitehaven. I cannot, therefore, comment at this stage. When the inspector's report of the inquiry is received, we shall give the matter careful consideration.
