Volume 498: debated on Tuesday 27 October 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what guidelines will be applied by the Shareholder Executive to safeguard national security in the sale of the UK share in Urenco; and whether any prohibition will be put on bids from companies or organisations from particular countries. (293886)

I have been asked to reply.

Careful consideration will be given to the policy issues that realising value from our interest in Urenco would give rise to before any decision to proceed is taken. Safeguarding national security will remain of paramount importance.
