HC Deb 08 December 1992 vol 215 cc587-8W
Mr. Ingram

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what plans he has to bring forward the 1994 nuclear review.

Mr. Eggar

It remains the Government's policy that the future prospects for nuclear power in the United Kingdom will he reviewed in 1994. However, the coal review currently being undertaken by my Department is looking at the implications of the non-fossil fuel obligation to purchase power from non-fossil sources including that from nuclear sources. It would be premature to decide detailed terms of reference for the 1994 review before the results of the coal review are known.
