Caroline Lucas MP asks about the proportion of high level radioactive waste which has been vitirfied into glass blocks. Energy Minister, Charles Hendry says that approximately 50% of the total HLW inventory in stock has been conditioned (or vitrified), but he fails to say how much new liquid waste will arise from the reprocessing of spent fuel yet to be discharged from existing reactors. Hendry repeats that the Government is not currently expecting spent fuel from new reactors to be reprocessed.
