Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions, pursuant to his reply to the hon. Member for Lewes (Mr. Baker) of 7 June 2000,Official Report, column 244W, on Cap de la Hague, if he will request information from (a) the French nuclear authorities and (b) Greenpeace France on nuclear waste liquid discharges and atmospheric radioactive discharges from the Cap de la Hague nuclear waste processing site. [127612]

Mr. Meacher

The operators of the La Hague site, Cogema, regularly publish details of their liquid and aerial radioactive discharges. Such discharges are closely controlled by the French regulatory authority and comply with international limits for doses to the public. If there are specific reasons why my hon. Friend believes extra information is needed related to specific accidents I would be interested for my hon. Friend to let me know.
