§ Sir Trevor Skeet
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment where depleted uranium is currently being stored.
§ Mr. Goodlad
I have been asked to reply.
Depleted uranium resulting from the reprocessing of magnox fuel and the operation of enrichment plants is stored by British Nuclear Fuels plc at its Sellafield, Springfields, Capenhurst and Chapelcross sites. Relatively small amounts are held by the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority for research and development purposes. Other uses, for small quantities of depleted uranium, were listed in my reply to the hon. Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell) on 21 October 1985, at column 21.
