§ Mr. Gordon Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Energy how many man hours have been lost since construction on the THORP expansion at Windscale began; and to what extent the estimated costs have been revised as a consequence.
§ Mr. Norman Lamont
Preparatory work only has been started on the site for the thermal oxide reprocessing plant (THORP) at Windscale and to date there have been few hours lost. It has not, therefore, been necessary to revise cost estimates.
