AWE Aldermaston

Volume 506: debated on Friday 5 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether research at the proposed new hydrodynamics facility at AWE Aldermaston will be undertaken exclusively for defence purposes. (319053)

The work undertaken at the existing hydrodynamics facility at AWE Aldermaston exclusively supports defence activities including the requirement to maintain the skills base for the UK's deterrent capability. It is expected that this would also be the case for any replacement hydrodynamics facility.
