Select Committee on Environmental Audit Written Evidence

Memorandum submitted by Robert Corran

  With regards to the generation of electricity nuclear power stations provide a clean source of power generation, at Sellafield the 4 no Magnox Reactors which were used to provide power for Calder Hall have been shut down and are currently subject to being decommissioned.

  I believe that when the decommissioning is complete the government have at their disposal an ideal location where a new Nuclear Power Station can be built, with no direct impact on the environment as it would be inside the confines of the existing Sellafield complex.

  On top of this it would provide new much sort after jobs for people in Cumbria, which at present is in a depressed state due to government cut backs in both the nuclear and defence industries.
