HC Deb 19 April 1983 vol 41 c64W
Mr. McKelvey

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he has any estimates of how much the cost of the pressurised water reactor at Sizewell would rise because of over-runs in construction; what assessment he has made of the effect of over-runs in the construction period on the cost of constructing a pressurised water reactor at Sizewell; and if he will estimate the likely additional costs arising from a a one-year and from two-year over-run in the construction period.

Mr. John Moore

The CEGB has published the relevant calculations in its evidence to the Sizewell 'B' inquiry, a copy of which is in the Library of the House.
