Britain to build new set of nuclear power stations within 10 years


Nuclear power only way to secure energy supplies and reduce emissions:
Less than two years after a government paper called nuclear power an
unattractive option, the Prime Minister will set up a government review
to explore options for renewing Britain’s 14 ageing nuclear power
stations, which supply a fifth of the country’s electricity. Blair said
nuclear power is the only way Britain can secure its energy supplies
and meet its commitments to make big cuts in carbon emissions.

Opposition agrees nuclear is an option: Environment Secretary
Margaret Beckett, a leading opponent of nuclear power, appeared to have
relaxed her position, telling the BBC on Sunday that she had always
accepted that Britain “could not afford to close the door on nuclear”.
