The Welsh Affairs Committee has today launched an inquiry into the future of nuclear power in Wales. The Wales Green Party is the only party in Wales that remains staunchly opposed to nuclear power. Alice Hooker Stroud, Leader of the Wales Green Party said: ” The Wales Green party welcomes the inquiry into the future of nuclear power. Nuclear power presents an unacceptable risk to the people of Wales and should not be part of building a sustainable future for Wales. It is absurd that at a time where we have seen renewable energy projects slashed due to UK government policy that we pursue nuclear power, which is expensive, dangerous and does not help meet short term carbon reduction targets.” The inquiry will explore how decommissioning processes for old generators are carried out and what the environmental impact is. The inquiry will then look at the future of nuclear energy for Wales in terms of providing money and job creation.
