Franco-British Nuclear Forum

Volume 497: debated on Tuesday 13 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change whether the Franco-British Nuclear Forum remains operational. (289889)

In April 2009 it was agreed between representatives of the British and French Governments that the Franco-British Nuclear Forum had achieved its objectives of exploring aspects and conditions of nuclear energy in the context of the new nuclear build programme in the UK. Therefore, given the high quality of existing bilateral cooperation between the British and French nuclear agencies it was also agreed that the forum should be brought to a formal close.
