MEDIA RELEASE The Hon Peter Garrett MP Minister for the Environment, Heritage and the Arts

PG/29 28 February 2008


The Coalition is still clinging to its nuclear power policies overwhelmingly rejected by the Australian people.

This morning’s Age newspaper reports Coalition leader Dr Nelson’s spokeswoman saying:

“Coalition policy is to investigate the possibility of nuclear energy.”

Dr Nelson must rule out once and for all any rollout of nuclear power stations across the country.

He must unequivocally rule out nuclear power from the Coalition’s policy agenda.
