LEAN position on Nuclear waste
Adopted at national conference, 27 November 2016
1.LEAN supports the current ALP national policy on this matter, and sees no evidence or reason to change that policy. The policy states that Labor will:
“Remain strongly opposed to the importation and storage of nuclear waste that is sourced from overseas in Australia.”
2.No State or Commonwealth ALP government should take legislative or executive actions to advance any proposals to store and dispose of nuclear waste from other countries until:
a.After well-informed, evidence-based, ALP policy platform decisions at the National and State levels allow such actions; and
b.There is sufficient well-informed community consent for such actions.
