HC Deb 10 December 1991 vol 200 cc382-3W
Mr. Dobson

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what is his Department's current estimate of the installed nuclear generating capacity in England and Wales in the year 2000.

Mr. Wakeham

The principal operator of nuclear capacity in England and Wales is Nuclear Electric plc. Decisions regarding capacity are mainly a commercial matter for the company. Nuclear Electric will operate its existing portfolio of plant as long as it remains both safe and economic to do so.
