Second quarter of 2000
David Chaytor, MP, has put down a new "Early Day
Motion" (EDM 887) in the UK House of Commons, to call upon the Government
not to support the agreement and work on independent assessment of it.
Submitted 22 June 2000
this House is concerned about the dangerous implications of the plutonium
deal agreed by Presidents Putin and Clinton on 4th June; calls upon
the Government, when the matter is raised at the G8 Summit at Okinawa
in Japan, not to support any financing of the agreement, which would
greatly increase MOX plutonium fuel use; and further calls upon the
Government to work with other G8 members on independent technical and
economic assessment (including liability issues) of the USA/Russian
(6) as of 22 June 2000.
