HC Deb 03 March 1986 vol 93 cc37-8W
Mr. Frank Cook

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if any contingency plans exist for the management of radioactive wastes once the existing storage facilities at nuclear installations are filled, and in the event that no permanent disposal sites have been approved.

Mr. Waldegrave

As my right hon. Friend announced on 25 February, at columns 812–25, Government policy is that disposal facilities for low and intermediate level wastes will be provided. It is for the waste producers to ensure that adequate storage facilities are available in the interim.
