HC Deb 27 January 1993 vol 217 cc732-3W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what plans he has to introduce new safety regulations following the decision to re-license Hinckley Point A Magnox reactor.

Mr. Eggar

[holding answer 25 January 1993]: I am informed by the Health and Safety Executive's Nuclear Installations Inspectorate (NII) that there is no specific requirement to re-licence or introduce new safety regulations at Hinckley Point A. However, following assessment of Nuclear Electric's (NE) long term safety review of Hinckley Point A the NII agreed (in December 1991) that the station could continue in operation up to 30 years (ie 1995) subject to completion of the programme of work specified in its assessment and compliance with NII safety requirements.
