Motion text

That this House condemns and deplores the decision by British Nuclear Fuels Ltd. to ship 1800 tons of radioactive materials to Kyrgyzstan for reprocessing; considers that BNFL has cynically calculated that it can do this in a small country that is out of sight and out of mind of those agencies and groups which monitor the nuclear industry; and notes the singular failure of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to appoint an ambassador resident in Kyrgyzstan which will no doubt have given succour and encouragement to the dumpers.
