To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with the person or organisation that has responsibility for the transportation of highly enriched uranium from Dounreay to the US.

The UK Government owns the nuclear materials currently stored at Dounreay and is responsible for any movements of that material. There is regular official contact between the Scottish Government and the UK Government, and Ministerial correspondence on significant matters.
