§ Mr. Frank Cook
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the quantity of liquid and gaseous radioactive discharges in gigabecquerels over the years 1970 to 1986 for the following nuclear installations: (a) Chapelcross, (b) Amersham International plc, and (c) Harwell.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
Quantities of liquid and gaseous radioactive discharges from 1976 to 1984 for Chapelcross, Amersham International plc, and Harwell are set out in the Department of the EnvironmentDigest of Environmental Pollution and Water Statistics, and associated additional tables. Figures for liquid radioactive discharges are also given for 1970 to 1975. Copies have been placed in the Library of the House. There are no comprehensive tables for gaseous discharges prior to 1976. Figures for 1985 will be contained in the Environmental Statistical Bulletin (87) 3 (Radioactivity) to be published shortly. Figures for 1986 are being compiled.
