§ 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:
Number 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.
