LETTER TO TIM FARRON MP
Tomorrow in the House of Lords at 3.45pm in the Moses Room Baroness Verma
will be leading a plan to change the law in order to dump democracy along
with nuclear waste.
Having just found out about this, Radiation Free Lakeland and other
voluntary groups have been frantically lobbying the House of Lords with
emails, phone calls and persuading those with a powerful voice such as
Friends of the Lake District to do the same.
Frack Free Somerset and others are also opposing this move, there appears
to be the
very real possibility that fracking boreholes may be used to dump nuclear
wastes. Radiation Free Lakeland are also mindful of the fact that 100
boreholes up to 150m deep (the depth at which nuclear wastes “can” be
dumped) are being dug right now next to Beckermet allegedly in preparation
To abandon the democratic process completely, by making the dumping of
nuclear waste a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project will exclude
locally-elected councilors, county officials and remove the need for any
genuine public consultation.
How much does the government want nuclear power? Will it do anything and
risk literally everything from democracy to health and the environment to
on behalf of Radiation Free Lakeland
