HC Deb 24 February 1984 vol 54 c653W
Mr. Alton

asked the Prime Minister what efforts were made to place the orders for component parts for the pressurised water reactors project with British companies.

The Prime Minister

I am advised that the Central Electricity Generating Board expects shortly to order from Framatome forging materials for the Sizewell B reactor pressure vessel which British industry is not equipped to supply. If Sizewell B goes ahead, the board expects over 90 per cent. of the total value of the project to be undertaken by British industry.
