§ Mr. Frank Cook
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list those Scottish sites authorised for the disposal of radioactive waste in the past year under the Radioactive Substances Act 1960; from which specified premises; for which specified wastes; and if he will list the owners of the sites.
§ Mr. Ancram
[pursuant to his reply, 5 December 1983., c. 150]: Two sites, one in Aberdeen and one in Stirling District, both owned by the local authorities concerned have, within the last 12 months, been included among the sites which I consider suitable for the controlled burial of certain low activity radioactivity wastes. Disposal of wastes to these sites has been authorised from two universities and four research institutes. The wastes authorised for disposal have included minor quantities of Carbon 14 and Tritium and of the radioactive isotopes of the elements sulphur phosphorus, iodine, potassium, sodium and chlorine.
