21. Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what are the latest figures for the cost of electricity generated by nuclear power in (a) the United Kingdom and (b) France.

Mr. Giles Shaw

Figures published by the CEGB last year showed generation costs over the lifetime of Magnox stations as 2.63p per kilowatt hour, and Hinkley B A.GR station as 2.39p per kilowatt hour. Published comparable figures are not available for French stations.
