§ Mr. Corrie
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how long it will be before Hunterston power station has to close 791W down because of the dispute at Wind-scale.
§ Mr. Gregor MacKenzie
Like other nuclear power stations in the United Kingdom, both stations at Hunterston have considerable storage capacity for irradiated fuel on site. I am, therefore, advised by the South of Scotland Electricity Board that the two stations could continue to run normally for several months in the absence of reprocessing facilities at Windscale.
