Nuclear Power — Confidence in planning process in Scotland and Wales — 5 Mar 2002 at 21:59

The majority of MPs voted for the motion:[1]

  • This House
  • has confidence in the process of granting planning consent for new nuclear power stations in Scotland and Wales;
  • notes the benefits of addressing issues relating to energy policy within a UK framework;
  • welcomes the contribution of the recent PIU Energy Review[2] to the debate on energy policy; and
  • welcomes the intention of HM Government and the devolved administrations to work in partnership in implementing an energy policy to ensure energy supplies are secure, competitively priced and sustainable.

This replaced a previous motion which was voted against by a majority of MPs.[3]
