§ Mr. Goodlad
I have been asked to reply.
The earliest Magnox stations in England and Wales are expected to remain operational at least until the early 1990s. Decommissioning of these stations will not give rise to highly active waste. Most of the radioactivity will be contained in the spent fuel which will be sent for reprocessing in the normal way. The procedures used in decommissioning will ensure that all waste materials are transported and disposed of in a properly controlled manner in accordance with authorisations under the Radioactive Substances Act 1960.
