No nuclear power plants for UK’s Conservative Party

We will not build nuclear power plants if elected – Tory adviser

North West Evening Mail 02 December 2009

David Cameron’s green adviser has thrown more doubt on where the party stands over nuclear power after declaring no new stations would be built under a Tory government.

Zac Goldsmith, the Tory candidate for Richmond, and one of Mr Cameron’s closest advisers on the environment, insisted no new nuclear power stations would be built if the Conservatives were to win the next general election.

He said Tory policy “was to give a green light to nuclear power as long as there is no call on the taxpayer, not just in terms of building, but maintenance, security and disposal of waste. In the history of nuclear power there has never been a station built without huge use of taxpayers’ subsidy.”…..Mr Cameron himself two years ago said the power source was a “last resort”.
