§ Mr. Norman Lamont
The capacities of light water reactor power stations officially projected for the international fuel cycle evaluation for 1984 were as follows:
Gigawatts (E) Belgium 5.5 Denmark — F. R. Germany 17–21.2 France 30.6 Ireland — Italy 2.2 Luxembourg — Netherlands 0.5 United Kingdom —
No figures were given for the capacity under construction in that year but the projected additional capacity for the year 1990, all of which would need to be under construction in 1984, was as follows:
Gigawatts (E) Belgium 1–4 Denmark 0–3 F. R. Germany 17–18 France 22–29 Ireland — Italy 22–30 Luxembourg — Netherlands 0–2 United Kingdom 1–4
These projections may be subject to revision and must be treated with caution.
The construction of a pressurised water reactor in the United Kingdom remains subject to safety clearance by the Nuclear Installations Inspectorate and to a public inquiry.
