Motion text

That this House notes with disappointment the 4th March judgment of the High Court which will allow BNFL to commission the THORP nuclear waste reprocessing plant at Sellafield; salutes Greenpeace, Lancashire County Council and all those who have campaigned against nuclear reprocessing in general and THORP in particular; believes that, notwithstanding this judgement, history will judge THORP to be a very expensive British economic mistake and an internationally dangerous and foolish environmental decision; and is resolved to go on challenging any Government decisions and policies which put at greater risk the sustainability and future of the planet.
