asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he is satisfied with the Health and Safety Executive's fulfilment of statutory duty under the Special Premises Regulations 1976 with respect to the current expansion of British Nuclear Fuels Ltd. operations at Windscale; and if he will make a statement.
