Motion text

That this House believes this country should be setting positive examples of sustainable development; notes with concern the attempts to resurrect unsustainable nuclear energy before the White Paper on existing nuclear waste is published; is further concerned that British Nuclear Fuels has failed to meet its requirements to reduce radioactive discharges at Sellafield made at the Ospar Conference in Sintra in July 1998; is worried that BNFL produced an internal paper demonstrating an increase in radioactive discharges which the company failed to make public, and only became known because of a leak; and calls upon Her Majesty's Government to be wary of positive claims for nuclear power when problems of plutonium, secrecy, waste, accidents and costs remain unresolved.
