To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what information he has on whether Nirex or any other statutory body plans to dispose of nuclear waste (a) at or near Parys mountain or (b) any other location in the constituency of Ynys Wôns.

My right hon. Friend has no information about any plans to dispose of nuclear waste in the constituency of Ynys Môn. If the investigations being carried out by United Kingdom Nirex Ltd. at Sellafield and Dounreay are favourable, the company intends to develop a repository at one of these two sites. If both sites prove unsuitable Nirex will look elewhere, but no decisions have yet been taken.
