Office for Nuclear Regulation did not have the information requested.

Dear Office for Nuclear Regulation,

In 2017 a Freedom of Information Request ref: 201706089 (also referred to as: 2017/24677) was asked:

Have Springfields Nuclear Fuels supplied cylinders of Uranium Hexafluoride and any other nuclear materials to the Soviet Union/ Russia? ( As described in the book Nuclear Juggernaught by Martin Bond)

The ONR response was:
...It is not in the public interest to release it due to the cost and time required to answer.

Given the current situation it is in the public interest to know what nuclear trade is going on between URENCO, Capenhurst and Westinghouse, Springfields, Preston, UK and Russia.

Question : During 2017 to 2021 has the ONR authorised the supply of nuclear materials to Russia from the URENCO plant at Capenhurst and the Westinghouse Springfields Nuclear Fuels Plant at Salwick, Preston ?

Yours faithfully,

Marianne Birkby
