HC Deb 24 June 1986 vol 100 c116W
Mr. Meadowcroft

asked the Paymaster General if he will increase the resources available for assessing the safety of Magnox nuclear reactors; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Trippier

Decisions on the allocation of resources to particular areas of work are a matter for the Health and Safety Commission and Executive subject to the limits set by the Government on their total salary expenditure and manpowr. The safety of Magnox nuclear reactors is kept under constant review by Her Majesty's nuclear installations inspectorate.
