Ms Shipley

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if she will make a statement on the vitrification process; and what studies the Department has undertaken of its validity as a form of disposal. [66099]

Mr. Wilson

Vitrification converts liquid high level radioactive waste into a solid and stable form. The Department has undertaken no studies of vitrification.
