Nuclear Safety In The Ukraine And The European Bank For Reconstruction And Development
That this House notes the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development's plans to fund completion of two partially constructed Soviet-designed reactors in the Ukraine, reactor No. 2 at Khmelnitsky and reactor No. 4 at Rovno, known collectively as K2/R4; is concerned that with the forthcoming 13th anniversary of the notorious Chernobyl disaster the Bank accepts that the completed reactors would not meet western European nuclear safety standards; is concerned that the proposal does not meet the Bank's own investment criteria; notes that the project should be the least cost solution; further notes that no environmental impact assessment has been carried out under Ukrainian law; and calls on the Government to support the German Bundestag in withholding support for the proposal pending a new investigation into non-nuclear options in the Ukraine.
This motion has been signed by a total of 82 MPs.
