§ Mr. Llew Smith
To ask the President of the Board of Trade which United Kingdom companies are involved in the consortium to be funded by a European Union loan to close the Chernobyl nuclear plant and provide a replacement gas-fired power plant. 
§ Mr. Eggar
No European Union loan has been offered to Ukraine for the construction of a gas-fired power plant to replace Chernobyl. I understand that a consortium led by Asea Brown Boveri, the international electrical engineering company, has made a proposal to the Ukrainian Government to build such a plant. I am not aware that any UK companies are involved in this consortium.
