HL Deb 14 December 1993 vol 550 c106WA
Lord Jenkins of Putney

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How they will respond to the expressions of view in some political parties that THORP should be abandoned.

Lord Strathclyde

Her Majesty's Government agrees with the resolution on the thermal oxide reprocessing plant that was passed in another place on 28 June 1993. The question of the discharge authorisations for the Sellafield site is the statutory responsibility of my right honourable friends the Secretary of State for the Environment and the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.
