§ Mr. Willie W. Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish in the Official Report a table showing details of the accidents occurring at nuclear power stations which were reported to his Department in each of the last 10 years; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Allan Stewart
The following table identifies the incidents occurring at individual Scottish nuclear 207W installations which have been reported to Ministers through Her Majesty's Nuclear Installations Inspectorate under arrangements laid down by the Government of the day in February 1977 and revised in July 1982. The first column gives the appropriate reference from the published quarterly reports of the inspectorate which provide details of incidents and which are available in the Library. Site operators also provide information to Ministers from time to time about incidents which do not fall within the formal reporting criteria but records of these are not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate expense.
