Yes. A copy of the report of the review, commissioned by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and undertaken by WS Atkins Science and Technology on the extendibility of local authority plans for responding to nuclear emergencies, will be placed in the Library.
Extendibility was one of many issues considered by the Hinkley Point C Public Inquiry. In response to the recommendations, HSE's Nuclear Installations Inspectorate published in 1990 a quantified scenario against which extended plans could be drawn up and tested. The scenario was last used to drive the Heysham Level 2 emergency exercise "Madonna" in September 1997. The review report was part of a process of evaluation which, together with the experience of the Heysham exercise, will be fed into a paper on outline planning for extendibility which will be considered by the Nuclear Emergency Planning Liaison Group (NEPLG) for issue during 1998.
