Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he received during his recent visit to the Bahamas from his Bahamian counterpart on the risks of nuclear waste and materials shipments through the Caribbean. [30835]

Mr. Fatchett

Shipments of vitrified nuclear waste and spent fuel through the Caribbean were discussed fully at the UK/Caribbean forum in Nassau on 13 February. Many Caribbean countries were represented at ministerial level. My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary reassured countries in the region about concerns over safety and liability.
