Energy: Nuclear Waste

Volume 686: debated on Tuesday 7 November 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How they define the meaning of host communities when considering the long-term storage of nuclear waste; and what are the physical limits of a host community.[HL7990]

In developing the implementation framework for the geological disposal of higher activity radioactive waste, the Government will consider the definition of host communities. The implementation framework will be subject to public consultation next year.
