NIS response to Ministry of Defence Submarine Dismantling Consultation

Nuclear Information Service welcomes consultation by the Ministry of Defence on the Submarine Dismantling Project and proposals for the interim storage of radioactive waste from submarines.  We have responded to the recent consultation on interim storage to give our views on the proposals from MoD.

Our response discusses specific issues relating to candidate storage site and the site selection process, and also registers our concern that the government has no long term plan for managing radioactive wastes yet seems determined to create more new waste by building new nuclear power stations, new nuclear warheads and new nuclear submarines.
