§ Lord Jenkins of Putney
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they have decided on a final disposal facility as recommended by their Advisory Committee on the Safety of Nuclear Installations and when it is expected to be ready for use.
§ Lord Strathclyde
UK Nirex has been investigating a site adjacent to BNFL's Sellafield works for its deep repository for low and intermediate level radioactive waste since July 1989. I understand that, subject to completion of the necessary planning procedures and operational approvals, Nirex hopes to begin emplacement of wastes at the repository around 2009.
