Councillor Elaine Woodburn, Leader of Copeland Council
“We have known for a long time that re-use of plutonium could hold the key to future nuclear development in West Cumbria. Prism seems to tick the boxes. It's well known we have been campaigning for a second Sellafield MOX plant but if the global market demand doesn’t exist for MOX then this could be the next best option in terms of safeguarding highly skilled well-paid jobs in Copeland.”
