Plaid Cymru Party in Wales sticking firmly to their anti-nuclear position

— Plaid Cymru leader Adam Price has said that nuclear power is “the wrong
answer” to Wales’ energy needs as three new nuclear reactors have been
mooted for Wylfa on Anglesey.

The UK Government have shown a renewed
interest in nuclear power over the last months as soaring energy prices and
the Russian invasion of Ukraine put energy supply and security firmly on
the political agenda.

US nuclear company Westinghouse has put together a
consortium with construction group Bechtel to revive plans for two nuclear
reactors at Wylfa since Hitachi, a Japanese conglomerate, abandoned their
own plans in 2019.


A consortium led by Rolls-Royce also wants to place one
of their own ‘small’ modular reactors on the site.

Speaking at Plaid Cymru’s conference in Cardiff, Adam Price – whose party is in control
of Anglesey council – said that although there was discussion within the
party they would stick firmly to their anti-nuclear stance.

“We’ve always been a pluralist political party that allows a debate to ensue and
to reflect the fact that obviously there are, and there have been divergent
views on this issue,” Adam Price told Sunday Politics Wales. “But at
the national level, of course, we can only have one policy and our national
consistent national policy and every motion that we’ve ever had an annual
conference has been consistent that we are a party that doesn’t believe
in nuclear. “We do not support nuclear power. It’s the wrong answer.

Renewables absolutely is the way to go. And I fear that, you know, nuclear
power, very expensive and unnecessary distraction.”
