Conservatives open national nuclear debate

November 30, 2017

In a historic moment in the Australian Senate, Australian Conservatives senator Cory Bernardi has moved to repeal the blanket ban on exploring a nuclear fuel cycle for Australia.

The Conservatives' Nuclear Fuel Cycle (Facilitation) Bill 2017 builds upon the growing case for nuclear energy as Australia's energy grid falters with the world's most expensive electricity.  

The Bill seeks to overturn bans put in place 19 years ago - at the behest of the Australian Greens - to prevent Australia ever having a nuclear industry.

Senator Bernardi explained to the senate that his home state of South Australia was the equivalent of a world superpower in uranium resources, and for its own economic benefit needed a nuclear fuel cycle to grow the state economy.
