§ Mr. Flynn
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what has been the annual cost(a) in cash and (b) 1989 pounds sterling of radioactive waste management and disposal for each of the magnox, advanced gas cooled reactor, fast reactor, steam generating heavy water reactor programmes, respectively; and how these costs have been factored into nuclear electricity prices.
§ Mr. Michael Spicer
The fast reactor at Dounreay and the SGHWR at Winfrith are experimental reactors operated by the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority. The prices paid by the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board and the Central Electricity Generating Board for electricity produced by these reactors are the result of commercial negotiations and reflect the cost to the boards of other supplies rather than the costs of generation. I have asked the chairman of the CEGB to reply to the hon. Member in respect of the board's Magnox and AGR stations.
