Energy plan set to back nuclear

‘Tony Blair has reiterated his backing for nuclear power as the government prepares to unveil its energy strategy.

Plans to build more nuclear power stations are expected to be among the proposals in the Energy White Paper.

An expansion of energy efficiency and renewable sources such as tide and wind power will also be detailed.

The PM says nuclear power can “underpin the security of our energy supply” but opponents say it is dangerous and will reduce investment in renewable sources.’
