HC Deb 14 June 1988 vol 135 c118W
Dr. Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what contribution has been made by his Department, towards the capping of the near-surface trenches of the Drigg dump site near Sellafield, containing wastes arising from nuclear processing for defence programmes.

Mr. Sainsbury

The Ministry of Defence, in common with all users of the Drigg depository, pays British Nuclear Fuels plc a charge per unit volume of waste deposited. These charges, which are a matter for commercial decision by BNFL, cover all aspects of site services.
