Nuclear Waste for Scotland again

There are plans to ship nuclear waste from the Lucas Heights reactor , Sydney, Australia to Dounreay.

Mrs Lorraine Mann, the convenor of Scotland Against Nuclear Dumping said last night: " There is absolutely no need to sign a contract before a Scottish parliament has had a chance to consider the implications of foreign reprocessing for Scotland. "

This is one issue that will make the parliament work hard on environmental issues especiialy as Westminster has turned both Scotland and the North of England (well away from London you'll notice) into the biggest waste facilities anywhere in the world.

WHat will take priority, jobs or environment?
