To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if he will list the examples of economic production of nuclear power abroad, referred to in his statement of 9 November 1989,Official Report, column 1182; and what information he possesses on how the cost of such nuclear electricity is calculated in each case.

Mr. Baldry

My right hon. Friend's remarks were informed by the IEA/NEA study "Projected costs of generating electricity from power stations for commissioning in the period 1995–2000", which gives information on the economics of nuclear power in a number of countries. The study will be published shortly.
