Ms Walley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department who is responsible for the costs incurred in respect of police escorts of United Kingdom road transportation of nuclear waste cargos; and if he will make a statement. [14370]

Mr. Page

I have been asked to reply.

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave her on 22 January 1997, Official Report, column 642 in which I explained there is no requirement for police escorts to accompany the road transport of radioactive waste.
