Global Nuclear Energy Partnership: Finance

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 2 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what (a) funding and (b) other resources his Department plans to commit to the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership. (191458)

There are no plans (a) to commit funds other than Travel and Subsistence (b) resources other than that necessarily involved in our membership of the GNEP Steering and Ministerial committees. Any future funding or resource commitment would be subject to further justification.

UK membership of GNEP allows us to help shape this international programme and help develop and share international best practice. It also helps position UK organisations to compete for international contracts and take part in collaborations that benefit their missions.
