§ Mr. Chaytor
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what assessment she has made of the implications for the nuclear reprocessing industry in the United Kingdom of the current proposal by BNFL to acquire the nuclear assets and liabilities of Westinghouse plc. 
§ Mr. Battle
The Westinghouse nuclear businesses which are being acquired by British Nuclear Fuels plc do not engage in reprocessing activities. Westinghouse focus mainly on production of nuclear fuel and on the decommissioning and clean-up of civil and military sites owned by the US Government.
