The Rt. Hon. Sir Robert Atkins, MEP for the North West, visited the BNFL/Westinghouse Plant at Springfields, near Preston, recently to be briefed on current industry developments and to demonstrate his support for those working in this important industry.

"Increasingly environmentalists - of whom I am one - are recognising the virtues and advantages of nuclear power generation", commented Sir Robert, "If the UK is to meet its anti-pollution commitments under the Kyoto Agreement, then nuclear energy is the only effective and clean option."

"This Company and its employees are a success story for the North West of England and we should give them and their industry the plaudits and encouragement that they deserve."
