HL Deb 14 December 1993 vol 550 c107WA
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.
