HC Deb 03 July 1996 vol 280 c457W
Mr. Purchase

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what was the design, build and commission cost of Sizewell B pressurised water reactor station; what is the net revenue received by the Exchequer since Sizewell B was commissioned to date; and what is the estimated profit and loss against the sale price of Sizewell B. [35299]

Mr. Eggar

Sizewell B commenced generation in the year ended 31 March 1995. At that date, the historic cost of Sizewell B, as recorded in the financial statements of British Energy, was £2,510 million. The net income of any individual power station is a commercial matter for the company. Sizewell B forms part of the assets of British Energy and is not being sold separately, consequently there is no "sale price of Sizewell B".
