HL Deb 02 November 1998 vol 594 c4WA
Lord Hardy of Wath

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have received from the Environment Agency draft determinations of applications by BNFL for variations to some of the radioactive discharge authorisations at Sellafield and to allow the mox plant there to come into operation. [HL3663]

Lord Whitty

Draft determinations on these applications were delivered today. We are arranging for copies to be placed in the Library. Members of the public who wish to obtain copies of the documents can do so by contacting the Environment Agency.

Requests have been made to Ministers to "call in" the applications for their own determination. These requests are being considered carefully and my right honourable friends the Secretary of State and the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food will announce their decisions as soon as they are able to do so.

Forward to
