To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change whether he plans to respond to the recommendations for specific actions by his Department made by HM Chief Inspector of Nuclear Installations in his report on the implications of the Fukushima nuclear accident for the UK nuclear industry; and whether he has estimated the cost to his Department of implementation of all such recommendations.

As the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change noted in his written ministerial statement of 11 October 2011, Hansard, column 20WS, the Government intend to respond to Dr Weightman's recommendations in more detail by the end of the year.

As with the response to Dr Weightman's interim report, we will set out what we have done, and what we intend to do, to address the recommendations most pertinent to Government.

Nuclear safety is a top priority and as such any associated costs to the Department will be borne out of the overall departmental budget.
