The Nuclear Free Local Authorities (NFLA) All Ireland Forum welcomes a decision of the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government to engage on the possible transboundary effects on Ireland of the proposed Hinkley Point C new nuclear reactor. The Joint Committee will discuss Hinkley Point C at midday on Tuesday 1st May in Committee Room 1, Leinster House. It will hear from expert speakers Professor John Sweeney of the National University of Ireland at Maynooth, Professor Stephen Thomas of Greenwich University and Attracta Ui Bhroin of the Irish Environmental Network. The meeting coincides with a recent consultation, organised by the Irish Government and facilitated by Irish Councils, that has allowed environmental groups and concerned members of the public to put forward their concerns to the UK Government over the transboundary effects of the proposed Somerset new nuclear site.
