Sinn Féin To Bring Motion Opposing the Dumping of Radio Active Waste

Sinn Féin are to bring a motion opposing the dumping of radio active waste in the ABC area following recent surveys into potential sites for the disposal of nuclear waste.

Speaking in advance of the motion Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Savage said:

"We are gravely concerned that surveys have recently been carried out in parts of our Borough by a British Government owned company (Radio Active Waste Management) into potential sites for the disposal of Nuclear waste.

He continued:

"We are unequivocally opposed to any potential geological disposal facilities and any further surveys in the Armagh Banbridge and Craigavon council area on this issue.

"We will ask the Chief Executive to write to the UK Secretary of State and the minister for Business, Environment and Industry outlining our concerns and opposition."
