§ Mr. Cousins
To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will list the three engineering design teams, and their location, which have been agreed under the future ITER programme; and if he will list the number of staff, and the total project cost of the JET at Culham, projected for 1992–93, and established for the three preceding years.
§ Mr. Eggar
The plasma vessel work for ITER—international thermonuclear experimental reactor—will be undertaken by the engineering design team in Garching, in Germany. Other plant engineering work will be undertaken by the team in Naka, in Japan. The design integration team will be based in San Diego, USA.
JET—joint European torus—is a Community project. Information on its staffing and funding is available from the annual reports of the JET joint undertaking, which are held in the House of Commons Library.
