Councillor Elaine Woodburn has responded to questions regarding the suitability of geology in west Cumbria:
"It's a fair nervousness that everybody has but there is no evidence to say that the area is unsuitable but there is also no evidence that it is suitable.
"We will only know if we go forward. And it is looked at indepth.
"Information at this stage is just not available."
Councillors will decide whether to look for a site to bury nuclear waste. We look at the arguments AGAINST going forward in the process.
As 24 councillors prepare to decide whether west Cumbria should look for a possible site to bury nuclear waste we look at the arguments FOR.
