To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if he will separate (a) any or (b) all of the costs of the Sizewell B power station from the non-fossil fuel levy at any future date.
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what is the estimated date of commissioning of Sizewell B; and what definition of commissioning is to be used.
This is a matter for Nuclear Electric. However, the company informs me that it is committed to a timetable for the Sizewell B project that will lead to fuel loading in August 1994 and full commercial output in February 1995. The project is currently well ahead of that programme. Commissioning is complete at the time of full commercial output.
