HC Deb 18 July 1995 vol 263 c1161W
Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what payments have been made to date to the United States Government to cover land remediation and the clear-up of toxic and radioactive contamination at the Nevada nuclear test site, arising from the use of the facility to test British nuclear warheads.

Mr. Arbuthnot

Charges negotiated in respect of the small proportion of tests conducted in the US involving UK-owned devices have included a site overhead element which, in its turn, has allowed for relevant waste disposal costs. The latter element has not, however, been separately identified.
