”No need to relax the ban on nuclear energy ”- Scott Morrison

There’s no need to do that’: Prime Minister rejects calls for nuclear power in Australia,  Prime Minister Scott Morrison has quashed the hopes of Australian nuclear energy advocates, despite agreeing to a new nuclear-powered submarine deal with the Unites States.Sky News 17 Sep 21

Australia contains a third of the world’s uranium, but the Prime Minister told Ben Fordham “there’s no reason for Australia to need to” relax the ban on nuclear energy.

The reactors powering the new submarines will be built overseas and imported.

“This doesn’t require the development of Australia’s civil nuclear capability.

“Australia has capability here – we don’t come to this new –  but in terms of going ahead with a civil nuclear capability, that is not something that is linked to this decision.”
