HC Deb 16 April 1999 vol 329 c372W
Mr. Hancock

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how much his Department has spent in each of the last five years on nuclear accident response; and if he will list the incidents and the cost involved with each. [80709]

Mr. Doug Henderson

There have been no incidents requiring nuclear accident response over the last five years and therefore no costs have been incurred. However, defence nuclear accident response capabilities are maintained in appropriate divisions within the Department and are regularly. exercised. Costs associated are borne by those divisions and no central record is maintained. Such a record could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
