Plutonium Problem

Published torsdag 17 november 2005 kl 14.05

Planned shipments of re-processed nuclear fuel, containing plutonium, are causing controversy in Sweden.

Four shipments of re-processed Swedish fuel are expected to be shipped from Sellafield in the UK back to the nuclear power station in Oskarshamn in Southern Sweden.

Anti-nuclear and environmental groups say transporting the deadly material is too dangerous. They’re calling for the shipments to be cancelled.

Under Swedish law nuclear power stations are not allowed to use re-processed nuclear fuel. But the government has indicated that it intends to push a bill through Parliament for a change in legal restrictions.

Critics argue that the government is pre-empting a parliamentary decision.
