§ Mr. Clifton-Brown
To ask the President of the Board of Trade when the report of the pre-operational safety review team mission to Sizewell B will be published.
§ Mr. Eggar
Copies of the report of the pre-operational safety review team mission to Sizewell B have been received from the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna and placed in the Library of the House. In October and November 1992, the team conducted a review of the operational safety arrangements at Sizewell B at the invitation of Her Majesty's Government, following a suggestion from Nuclear Electric, the operators of Sizewell 719W B. As I informed the House on 16 December 1992, Official Report, column 237, the review team concluded that Sizewell B is a well-managed nuclear plant.
It is normal practice for a pre-OSART review to be in two stages. A follow-up visit, with a smaller team, took place on 14 to 18 February.
