'There needs to be a full investigation' into nuclear waste site

The Trade Unionists for Safe Nuclear Energy chair, Kevin Coyle will open discussions on the nuclear waste debate.

Speaking before the discussion, he said:

"For there to be a full and proper debate there needs to be a full and proper investigation into the feasibility of a geological disposal facility in Cumbria.

"Only then can we consider how best to proceed. This issue is too important to make decisions without all the evidence."

– Kevin Coyne, Unite National Officer
