Cumbria Trust was surprised to find that our recent criticism of CoRWM has been challenged by GDFWatch, a website with the publicly stated aim of offering ‘trusted impartial advice’ on matters of geological disposal. GDFWatch was founded by Roy Payne. We have provided clear and unambiguous evidence that CoRWM reversed their position on screening out areas of unsuitable geology between June 2017 and October 2018, bringing themselves into line with government policy. It isn’t clear to us why Roy won’t accept this point, suggesting instead that this may be a mere difference in phrasing. We would point out that if GDFWatch really wants to provide ‘trusted impartial advice’, it should look again at this.
