HC Deb 17 June 1996 vol 279 c315W
Mr. Eric Clarke

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will publish detailed information on all nuclear generating stations in Scotland with special reference to safety, structural soundness, security, and good working practice, before privatisation. [31689]

Mr. Eggar

Detailed information on British Energy's nuclear generating stations, including those in Scotland at the Hunterston B site and at Torness, is contained in the British Energy pathfinder prospectus issued on 10 June and will also be included in the publicly available full retail prospectus which will be published on 26 June. That prospectus will also contain detailed information about the legislative and regulatory regimes which British Energy must comply with to operate. Magnox Electric's nuclear generation station at the Hunterston A site in Scotland has closed.
