MANY Thanks to all supporters of Radiation Free Lakeland who have written to Tim Farron MP re nuclear subsidy and EDM 619
His strongly worded reply is below:
“Thank you for your recent email in which you had asked me to sign Early Day Motion 619 with regard to future nuclear power generation.
I have to explain that Parliamentary Protocol dictates that party leaders do not put their names to these motions but I can confirm that I have written to the Prime Minister to demand explanation of the governments decision to subsidise nuclear power to be generated by foreign companies. I will write again when I have recieved the response.
This decision is all the more unwanted at a time when the government has jeopardised the vibrant solar power industry by its immediate withdrawal of the support for Feed in Tarriffs.
with best wishes
Tim Farron MP”
