Nuclear stations to be banned in WA
Sunday Jun 3 15:24 AEST
Nuclear power stations will be banned in Western Australia by legislation aimed at thwarting the prime minister’s nuclear push, Premier Alan Carpenter says.
Mr Carpenter announced the new legislation at the WA Labor Party state conference.
The legislation will prohibit the construction or operation of a nuclear facility, the transportation of certain material to a nuclear facility site and the connection of nuclear generation works to electricity transmission or distribution systems.
Mr Carpenter said new technology was the answer to climate change challenges not nuclear power.
