§ Mr. Barron
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy when he expects the annual report and accounts of British Nuclear Fuels plc for the financial year 1989–90 to be published; and what are the reasons for the delay in their publication.
§ Mr. Heathcoat-Amory
I understand that the accounts of British Nuclear Fuels plc for the financial year ended 31 March 1990 will be filed with the Registrar of Companies during April 1991 and published as soon as possible afterwards. The accounts have been delayed as a result of negotiations on new contractual arrangements between the company and its two major United Kingdom customers, Nuclear Electric plc and Scottish Nuclear Ltd.
