Motion text

That this House recalls the repeated Government assurances that no subsidies would be paid to new nuclear stations; notes the estimate of former government adviser Professor Tom Burke that a taxpayer subsidy of up to 30 billion of taxpayers' money will be demanded in addition to the unique taxpayer subsidy of insurance covering the vast liabilities of nuclear accidents beyond the 200 billion cost of Chernobyl; and insists that Parliament must have full transparency of all taxpayer liabilities before any commitments are made to nuclear subsidies.
