HC Deb 12 November 1987 vol 122 c197W
Dr. Twinn

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether United Kingdom Nirex Ltd. has made any progress with its proposals to develop a deep repository for low and intermediate-level wastes.

Mr. Ridley

UK Nirex Ltd. has today published a discussion document—copies of which have been placed in the Library — outlining its proposals for a deep disposal facility for low and intermediate-level wastes and inviting comments from interested parties. I welcome this document and the consultation exercise of which it is a part. I hope that as many people as possible will take the opportunity to read the document and submit comments to Nirex.
