Debating nuclear power


Madam, – So Minister for the Environment John Gormley is agreeable to a debate about nuclear power (Home News, November 21st). Does he, like his Green colleague Eamon Ryan, hope that such a debate will show that nuclear power is not for Ireland? Does he appreciate that a proper debate is ruled out by the egregious legal ban on electricity generated by nuclear power, which currently inhibits any open discussion with those in authority?

We can get nowhere until that ban is repealed. – Yours, etc,
