§ Ms Julie Morgan
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to his answer of 30 June,Official Report, column 63, which company will be undertaking the site decontamination works at the former atomic weapons establishment site at Llanishen, Cardiff. 76W
§ Mr. Spellar
Although, invitations to bid have been issued for the decommissioning and demolition work, it is not yet possible to define the scope of work needed for decontamination. This is dependent on the land quality statement, which will be produced during the decommissioning phase. It is not expected that a decontamination contract will be let before the end of the decade.
