Ms Roseanna Cunningham

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what is the estimated time needed to build a storage facility for spent nuclear fuel. [7281]

Mr. Page

[holding answer 20 December 1995]: This can be, estimated only when a number of factors, including the volume of fuel to be stored, the requirements of the user of the store, the terms of the construction contract and the time needed to acquire the necessary planning consents and safety approvals are quantified.
