HC Deb 13 December 1989 vol 163 cc670-1W
Mr. Michael Brown

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the number of employees at each nuclear power station in Scotland.

Mr. Lang

I am advised by the South of Scotland electricity board, British Nuclear Fuels and the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority that, as at the end of November 1989, the number of employees at Scottish power stations was as follows:

Chapelcross 630
Dounreay 11,838
Hunterston A and B 21,046
Torness 1634
1 The figure of 1,838 represents the total number of employees at the Dounreay Nuclear Establishment; of these, only around 15 per cent. work on the operation or in close support of the prototype fast reactor.
2 The figures do not include Headquarters and Central Services personnel involved wholly or partly with nuclear generation.
