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."
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.
