§ 26. Mr. Bellingham
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what has been the level of investment to date in the sizewell B nuclear power station.
§ Mr. Heathcoat-Amory
By September 1991, when my Department received the most recent six-monthly progress report from Nuclear Electric, £1,614.2 million had been committed in respect of the Sizewell B project of which £1,224.3 million had been spent, in April 1987 prices. I am delighted to say that the project remains well ahead of time and within budget.
