North West MEP Speaks up for the Nuclear Industry

Speaking in the European Parliament last night (see speech), Rt. Hon. Sir Robert Atkins, MEP for the North West, lashed out at the tendentious and ill-informed attack on his Constituents working in the Nuclear Industry by Irish and Green MEPs.

"I made it crystal clear" he said, "that suggestions in the Debate that workers and management cared little for safety, the environment or public fears - largely generated by trouble-makers - in the transportation of nuclear material were wholly unacceptable and without foundation. I managed to wreck these proposals" continued Sir Robert, "when they came before my Committee last month and I am determined to ensure that they are not resurrected in the Parliament. My Constituents deserve no less."
