Mr. Battle

[holding answer 2 June 1997]: I refer my hon. Friend to the BNFL publication "The Annual Report on Radioactive Discharges and Monitoring of the Environment" and in the case of Dounreay, the figures for liquid and gaseous discharges are contained in the HMSO publication, Radioactive Waste Discharges form UKAEA Establishments and Associated Monitoring Results", both of which are available from the Library of the House. The amount and content of material discharged from Sellafield and Dounreay are subject to limits set by the Government's regulatory bodies.
