asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he has yet considered the several representations made by the hon. Members for Gillingham and for Medway (Dame P. Fenner) regarding the storage of additional nuclear waste at Ministry of Defence, Gillingham; and if he will make a statement.

I have carefully considered the proposal to transport nuclear material to MOD Gillingham for temporary storage. I have concluded that alternative arrangements can be made which do not involve the storage of any further material in MOD Gillingham. I can assure my right hon. friend, therefore, that no nuclear material will be transported to MOD Gillingham for storage.
