In the UK, the Nuclear Industry Association’s begging bowl runneth over (“Nuclear developers press for ‘prompt’ decision on new UK plants”, June 24). The NIA’s full report contains a barrage of demands including that development costs be paid for, an assured flow of orders and all risks covered by taxpayers or consumers. For an industry in global decline, beset by technical difficulties, overruns and overspends, this is audacious indeed.
