MP proposes change to nuclear fuel arrangements

On 7 April 2010, Labour MP Jamie Reed introduced a bill under the ten minute rule requiring the government to make arrangements to reprocess spent nuclear fuel stored in the UK to meet non-proliferation objectives.

The bill also requires the government to offset the decommissioning costs of major reprocessing facilities.

It was given an unopposed first reading, but stands no chance of becoming law due to a lack of parliamentary time before the general election.
