HC Deb 19 July 1982 vol 28 c65W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Transport why he refused the request of nine London borough councils including the borough of Newham to discuss the question of the transport of nuclear waste; and whether he will now reconsider his refusal.

Mr. Eyre

The Government's position on this matter is already well known, and in the absence of any relevant new evidence such a discussion would serve no useful purpose. I have said that I will consider any such evidence that may be submitted to me.
