The chief executive of the government agency that bungled the £7 billion contract to decommission Britain’s 1960s nuclear power stations has announced his retirement a week after a damning High Court judgment over the botched tender. John Clarke, who has been chief executive of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority since 2012, said that he would serve out his one-year notice period and hand over to a successor. Under his tenure the NDA has been criticised by the National Audit Office, the public accounts committee and, last week, a High Court judge, who ruled that it had awarded the huge contract to decommission Britain’s 12 Magnox nuclear reactors to the wrong bidder.
