HC Deb 20 November 1986 vol 105 cc338-9W
Mr. Home Robertson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will ensure that a copy of the Torness site emergency plan is placed in the Library before the fuelling of the reactor at Torness has been completed.

Mr. Lang

The production of the Torness emergency plan is a matter for the South of Scotland Electricity Board (SSEB), subject to the approval of Her Majesty's nuclear installations inspectorate (NII) under the terms of the licensing conditions, as is the distribution of the plan. The plan is approved by the NIL in section as the commissioning of the plant progresses and fuelling is only a part of the commissioning process. The board has undertaken to place a copy of the plan in the Library as soon as it has been fully approved by the NII.
