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

Todays meeting at Oldbury

Hi Zoe 

It was good to meet you , Alison and Matthew today.

There will be some additional questions that we will be asking over the next week or so.

Thanks for clarifying when the blow down is estimated to start so that people are aware of this and can make their appropriate decisions.

As we shared today,we view this issue from completely different perspectives and we understand your concerns for employment in the area but  this power station was due to close in 2008 so this is no revelation to the staff or management on site.

Can you please confirm  how many people will work on site and for how long when decommissioning commences?

I would like to know the views of Magnox  on the letter from Dr. Georgui Kastchiev which recommends that both Oldbury and Wylfa should be closed down to avoid any further risks to the people of Europe.

If you can confirm what time the next SSG will take place I will endeavour to make it and also will keep the members of SANE informed.

Hi Reg,

It was nice to meet yourself and David earlier, I hope the conversation was useful and answered some of the questions you have.

I undertook to provide you with some contact details for our regulators, which are as follows:

Robert MacGregor - Environment Agency
01491 828379

Dr Malek Ghannad - Office for Nuclear Regualtion (formerly NII)
0151 951 3484

I have asked the question about exactly when the CO2 release is likely to happen, and the working plan at the moment is around 96 hours after the trip takes place, so provisionally 5pm on Saturday May 14. I must stress that this is only a provisional timing though, and hopefully I can give you firmer details nearer the time.

I hope this is useful,

Kind regards,
