Nuclear Power

Volume 505: debated on Friday 5 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change pursuant to the answer of 2 February 2010, Official Report, column 187W, on nuclear power: regulation, what cost recovery has been applied to the Nuclear Industry Association, as originator of the nuclear justification document which was the subject of discussion at the public consultation meeting; and whether he plans to apply cost recovery to applicants for any future meetings held on nuclear justification. (316515)

The Nuclear Industry Association met the cost of making its application for a Regulatory Justification decision. The public engagement event on 19 January was part of the Government’s public consultation on my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State’s proposed decisions. It is therefore proper that the Government meet the cost of the event.
