Published: 25 February, 2019



A Sinn Féin motion to oppose the dumping of radio active waste in the ABC area passed at tonight's council meeting. However Sinn Féin Councillors have expressed shock that the DUP refused to rule out the dumping of radio active nuclear waste in the ABC Council area.

Speaking following the Sinn Féin motion Sinn Féin Councillor Keith Haughian said:

"We brought forward 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.

"We are shocked that the grave concerns we expressed - including a risk to life in the transportation of it - was not backed by the DUP.

"We are however delighted that all other parties supported our motion which passed."
