Wales should not be Westminster’s dumping ground: Leanne Wood
Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood has challenged the First Minister to stop the dumping of nuclear mud in Wales.
Leanne Wood said that the government’s fixation on accepting jobs at any cost had led to the dumping of potentially radioactive waste in Welsh water, and challenged the First Minister to revoke the license if it transpires that the material poses a risk to public health.
Addressing the First Minister, Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood said:
“This mantra of “jobs at any cost” has led you to accepting the disposal of mud from a nuclear site, in Welsh waters.
“Why on earth is Wales taking waste from another country, which could be radioactive?
“I don’t know why you granted the license in the first place.
“Will you agree to revoke it, if it transpires that there is even the smallest risk to peoples’ health?”
