§ Llew Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what recent communications she has had with her German counterpart, and what exchanges have taken place at official level, in respect of those amendments to the German atomic law which have implications for the United Kingdom. 
§ Mr. Wilson
I have been asked to reply.
Amendments to German legislation are a matter for the Government of Germany. My Department has continued to press the German Government to ensure that any changes to legislation implemented in order to facilitate the phase-out of nuclear power in Germany do not prevent the effective fulfilment of BNFL's reprocessing contracts with German utilities.
