asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether the Nuclear Installations Inspectorate has been advised of the circumstances of the malfunction of the nuclear reprocessing plant at Cap de la Hague on 16 April; and if it will have an opportunity of discussions with its French counterparts about this accident.

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Keighley (Mr. Cryer) on 25 April 1980. The arrangement to which I referred, between the Health and Safety Executive and the French Government agency, provides for the exchange of information by various means including discussions where appropriate.
