UK MP deplores the danger of flying nuclear wastes from Scotland

Press and Journal 4th May 2019  Highland Green MSP John Finnie has expressed concern after three quarters
of a ton of highly enriched uranium was transported from Dounreay in
Caithness to America. He said: “The appropriate place for dangerous
material is secure storage and supervision by highly trained staff where it
was created, not transportation.

“Whilst pleased that this risky has been completed without incident, that we know of. “But before the authorities
on both sides of the Atlantic pat themselves on the back, they need to
reflect on the dangers they put communities in. “As was evidenced when a
ship which was transporting nuclear material in the Moray Firth went on
fire. As with oil and gas reserves, the message regarding nuclear waste has
to be ‘keep it in the ground’.”
