§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will list the approximate dates on which his Department was consulted on the use of uranium ores from Namibia.
§ Mr. Norman Lamont
The use to which uranium inported from Namibia is put is a matter for the parties to the contract. The United Kingdom party is now the CEGB.The contract was originally placed in 1968, and was the subject of consultation at that time between the Department then concerned and the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority.
