Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 2 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what assessment he has made of the adequacy of the evacuation plan for Sellafield following the recent floods in Cumbria; and what direct effect the flooding had on the Sellafield site. (303069)

Evacuation plans were tested at Sellafield on 24 September 2009 as part of the annual national nuclear exercise and remain fit for purpose.

There has been no impact on safety and operations at the Sellafield Site, no threat to site facilities and plants have remained operating as normal.
