Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima
We feel very sad for the people of Japan who want to end nuclear energy whilst a potential new government and big business are desperate for it

No Fukushima at Oldbury

No to Fukushima at Shepperdine!

Draft NPS for Nuclear power to at The House of Lords on Tuesday March 9thbe Considered in The Grand Committee

From the DECC press release yesterday (see http://nds.coi.gov.uk/content/detail.aspx?ReleaseID=411425&NewsAreaID=2&HUserID=886,779,890,849,780,684,710,705,765,674,677,767,684,762,718,674,708,683,706,718,674&ClientID=-1) I noticed that the House of Lords is due to debate the NPSs shortly and have now spotted that the House of Lords have a debate scheduled:



"Tuesday, 9 March 2010"

"Debate: DRAFT NATIONAL POLICY STATEMENT FOR NUCLEAR POWER GENERATION (EN-6) CONSIDERATION IN GRAND COMMITTEE [LORD HUNT OF KINGS HEATH]

. Speakers, in alphabetical order:

• L Greaves

• L Hunt of Kings Heath (Minister)

• L Teverson "

Lord Hunt is the Minister for Energy at DECC. Lord Greaves is Lib Dem and from Pendle in Lancs so probably speaking for Kirkstanton and Braystones? Lord Teverson is Lib Dem and from Cornwall and is the Lib Dem spokesman for Energy and Climate Change possibly a speaker for Hinkley? Just guessing though.

Does anyone know anyone in the House of Lords who might be interested in our cause?

If so it would be a good idea to try and get a few on side and send them copies of the responses from SANE and S. Glos Council, best to send a pdf rather than sending them to the blog which they may have trouble with logging in to etc. Pdf's attached for anyone to use.

I dont know any Lords(!) but have looked through the list to see if I can work out which ones come from around here and found a Lord Cope of Berkeley (ex conservative MP for s.glos) who should know the area?

Also the Leader of the House of Lords is a Baroness Royall of Blaisdon, which is in the Forest of Dean, but she is presumably labour and as leader no doubt wrapped up in the plans of the current government?

Any other thoughts?...Your comments are always appreciated
