asked the Secretary of State for Energy how much is being spent by the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority in (a) 1979–80 and (b) 1980–81 on information and public relations on behalf of the nuclear industry; and what share of these sums is being spent in Scotland.

The UKAEA estimates that its expenditure on the distribution of information about nuclear power to the public will amount to about £350,000 in 1979–80 and about £650,000 in 1980–81. It is not possible to say how much of these sums will be spent in Scotland.
