§ Mrs. Clwyd
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what is the nature of the work being carried out by the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority's Harwell research centre for(a) his Department and (b) any other institutions or Governments; and what is the value of any contracts on which Harwell is engaged under those categories.
§ Mr. Sainsbury
I refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Leyton (Mr. Cohen) on 14 December at column581 by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Energy regarding work undertaken at UKAEA Harwell for MoD. I am not in a position to comment upon work undertaken at Harwell for other institutions or governments. It is not our policy to provide commercial details of contracts.
