China: Nuclear Plants

Volume 456: debated on Tuesday 6 February 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what estimate he has made of the value of the contract with China to provide new nuclear plants for which BNFL was competing; and what steps his Department took to assist in attempts to win this contract for a British company. (112549)

None. The contract negotiations with the Chinese to provide reactors were a matter primarily for Westinghouse and new owners Toshiba. Negotiations were led by Westinghouse, initially under BNFL's ownership/governance and then Toshiba's.
