§ Mr. D. E. Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether the Sellafield plutonium storage ponds contaning United Kingdom origin plutonium from British magnox reactors are physically inspected by International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors in connection with safeguards applied under the United Kingdom, International Atomic Energy Agency/European Atomic Energy Authority tripartite safeguards treaty.
§ Mr. Goodlad
No. The position on the designation of civil nuclear facilities for inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency remains as stated in my reply of 3 December 1984 to the hon. Member.
