U.K.'s Cleanup of Sellafield Nuclear Site Too Slow, Panel Says

U.K.'s Cleanup of Sellafield Nuclear Site Too Slow, Panel Says 03 Feb 2013 The U.K.'s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority isn't showing enough urgency in completing the cleanup of radioactive waste at its Sellafield facility in the north of England, a panel of lawmakers said. "It is unclear how long it will take," Margaret Hodge, a lawmaker from the opposition Labour Party who chairs the Public Accounts Committee, said in an e-mailed statement. Hodge's panel of lawmakers released a report today in which it said it’s "implausible" that the authority can't speed up construction of an underground storage facility at the site for nuclear waste, which is currently slated to take another 27 years. The total cost of decommissioning Sellafield has now reached 67.5 billion pounds ($106 billion).
