§ Mr. Flynn
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what has been the total charge levied by the United States in collective historic pounds and in current pounds for United Kingdom use of the Nevada test site for the nuclear testing of United Kingdom warheads(a) since the programme began and (b) since 1979; and what arrangements have been made by the United States authorities for the management and disposal of radioactive wastes arising from these United Kingdom nuclear warheads.
§ Mr. Alan Clark
It is not our policy to publish the costs of these tests. Arrangements for the management and disposal of radioactive wastes are included in the costs levied by the United States authorities. Such wastes are disposed of by the United States under recognised procedures.
