§ Mr. Frank Cook
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is satisfied that the discharge from Sellafield on 23 January complied with the as low as reasonably achieveable requirement in the site authorisation issued by the Department; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
I have been asked to reply.
I am advised that the discharge from Sellafield on 23 January did not contravene any limit or condition contained in either of the authorisations granted by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and by my Department relating to the discharge of liquid waste containing radioactive materials by British Nuclear Fuels.
