HC Deb 24 October 2002 vol 391 c420W
Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations have been received by HM Government in respect of safety and security concerns expressed in regard to the shipment of rejected plutonium MOX fuel from Japan to Sellafield; and what the cost is of the security provisions in place to protect the nuclear cargo [75457]

Mr. Wilson

Representations have been received by our Diplomatic Missions overseas and by the Department from hon. Members, their constituents, non-government organisations and others over safety and security over the return transport of MOX fuel to the UK from Takahama in Japan.

Costs of compliance with regulatory nuclear security requirements are borne by the company. Details of those costs are a matter for BNFL.
