HC Deb 04 March 1997 vol 291 c590W
Mr. Clapham

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many military sites in the United Kingdom have nuclear waste storage facilities; and what is the total amount of radioactive waste in storage at the(a) Army, (b) Royal Navy and (c) Royal Air Force sites. [15999]

Mr. Arbuthnot

[holding answer 14 February 1997]: MOD stores radioactive waste in numerous locations throughout the United Kingdom. Details, including predicted future arisings, from the 10 major MOD sites in the United Kingdom, either storing or producing radioactive waste, were published by Nirex in "The 1994 United Kingdom Waste Inventory", a copy of which has been sent to the Library. Other minor items of radioactive waste are stored at various locations prior to disposal; however, it would involve disproportionate cost to provide details of these.
