§ The Prime Minister
I am advised by the CEGB that no components have yet been ordered by it for Sizewell B. The board expects shortly to order, from Framatome, in France, forging materials for the reactor pressure vessel at a cost of about £3 million. Later in the year the CEGB expects orders for other long lead reactor components to be placed at a cost of up to £9 million. No decisions have been taken on where these orders will be placed.
