§ 48. Mr. Wallace
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress is being made with the investigation of the feasibility of the disposal of radioactive waste below the seabed.
§ Mrs. Rumbold
I assume the hon. Member is referring to the concept of emplacing intermediate-level wastes under the continental shelf, I understand that NIREX has now let two contracts for generic desk studies into the feasibility of systems that may be suitable for this purpose.
