HC Deb 16 December 1982 vol 34 c222W
Mr. Ashley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list for the last three years and to the latest available date the number of sheltered housing units assisted; and what in each case has been the percentage increase over the previous year.

Sir George Young

Following are the available estimates:

waste, as defined in Cmnd. 8607; and what progress has been made in the construction of disposal facilities for such waste.

Mr. Giles Shaw

The nuclear industry radioactive waste executive will bring forward proposals for disposal facilities for intermediate-level wastes as soon as they have carried out the necessary preparatory work, including the selection of possible sites. The authorising Departments will require appropriate monitoring to be carried out, both before the facilities come into operation and subsequently, but the details will depend on the site and on the wastes which are to be disposed of there.
