GDF Watch 7th Dec 2018 , It has been over 10 years, 4 Prime Ministers, and 5 Administrations since
the original Committee on Radioactive Waste Management (CoRWM) recommended
geological disposal. In that period successive Governments of all Parties
have recommitted to geological disposal.

With the recent publication of
position papers updating their advice on a range of key issues, the latest
CoRWM have also reaffirmed their expert opinion that geological disposal
remains the best available way to dispose of higher-activity radioactive
waste. Four new papers have been issued in response to specific concerns
raised in stakeholder submissions to the public consultations earlier this
year on the GDF draft National Policy Statement (NPS) and the Working With
Communities siting policy:
