HC Deb 11 February 1991 vol 185 cc323-4W
Mr. Rogers

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what estimate he has now made of the costs anticipated for 1991–92, 1992–93, 1993–94 and 1994–95 to fund the proposals by the Atomic Weapons Establishment Bill, since his statement to the House of 18 December 1990,Official Report, column 251.

Mr. Kenneth Carlisle

The only expenditure I expect to arise directly from the provisions of the Atomic Weapons Establishment Bill, as opposed to expenditure which the Secretary of State is able to make under his existing powers, is that of setting up an employing company at AWE. As I told the House on 18 December, this is likely to be of the order of £50,000. This will probably be incurred during 1991–92.
