§ Mr. Cummings
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how much, by weight or cubic capacity, radioactive waste is stored in Great Britain; whether any such waste is stored in the county of Durham; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Moynihan
One thousand three hundred and fifty cu m of heat-generating radioactive waste and 41,800 cu m of intermediate-level radioactive waste are currently stored in Great Britain. None of this waste is stored in county Durham. A further 2,430 cu m of low-level radioactive waste is in temporary storage in Great Britain pending its disposal at British Nuclear Fuels' site at Drigg, in Cumbria.
