Inquiry to question whether Australia needs nuclear industry to support submarine program

Nuclear agencies will face questions over whether Australia needs an atomic industry to support a planned nuclear-powered submarine fleet at an inquiry into naval shipbuilding on Friday.

The Senate economics committee inquiry has been running for two years, but this will be the first public hearing since the federal government announced its intention to acquire at least eight nuclear-powered submarines.

Independent senator Rex Patrick has called the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency and the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation to appear.
