Say no to public bailouts of nuclear industry - ask the Govt to invest in safe, green energy instead #DT @wwwfoecouk

As environment spokespeople, I am writing to ask you to do everything within your power to ensure the public do not have to pay for dealing with radioactive waste from any new nuclear power stations. The Coalition Government have promised that nuclear power will get no public subsidy. Yet the Energy Bill currently in Parliament contains a clause that would allow Ministers to give up their right to demand changes to agreements on how nuclear waste from new power stations is dealt with. Ministers say the clause is needed to give greater certainty to investors in nuclear power. In reality this transfers risk away from companies onto the public purse. This is a hidden subsidy for the nuclear industry. It breaks the promise the coalition made. If the Government is to be the greenest ever, it should scrap this clause and invest in safe, green energy instead.
