Cumbria Trust has long believed that the national geological screening process would simply be a charade before the government returns to Cumbria to bury its nuclear waste. According in-Cumbria.com this morning, it appears that our worst fears have been confirmed.
Apparently, energy Minister Baroness Lucy Neville-Rolfe has decided not to wait for the results of the screening process, before indicating that west Cumbria is almost certainly the chosen location according to this article from in-cumbria.com
What was supposed to be a decision based on geology and local democracy, appears to have already been made without concern for either. If this is the case, it cannot and indeed will not go unchallenged.
