Email to Tim Farron MP

Dear Tim,

Please would you consider signing this important EDM
NUCLEAR SUBSIDIES AND THE COALITION AGREEMENT

Session: 2013-14
Date tabled: 14.10.2013
Primary sponsor: Flynn, Paul

Early day motion 568 – NUCLEAR SUBSIDIES AND THE COALITION AGREEMENT

That this House recalls the Coalition Agreement said that new nuclear
power stations would be permitted ‘provided that they receive no public
subsidy’; believes that the present proposed deals guarantee a fixed
subsidy for 40 years at double the current cost of electricity; further
notes that any future cost escalation will be paid for from the public
purse as a subsidy; further notes that the current nuclear waste clean-up
costs being met by taxpayers add up to over £75 billion; further believes
that any deal done with Chinese financiers to support the building of
nuclear power plants will inevitably result in massive future liabilities
to British taxpayers; and calls on the Coalition to honour its own
agreement and cancel all subsidies.
