John Clarke, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority said prior to the NDA being formed there was no credible lifetime plan for Sellafield.
“The NDA welcomes the PAC Report and looks forward to discussing detailed points and recommendations with DECC before responding in full.”
Prior to the NDA's inception there was no credible lifetime plan for Sellafield and tough decisions about how we ultimately decommission the site had simply been put off for future generations to deal with. We are now facing up to those challenges and for the first time we have a proper plan in place for the decommissioning of Sellafield which lays out in detail programmes of work for every area of the site.
