The Tory and Executive amendments do not mention nuclear power. I wonder whether it is because there is an election coming along that nuclear power has been airbrushed out of the amendments.

Does the Executive now implicitly support the building of new nuclear power stations? Is that the new reality? Are the Liberals now so beholden to Labour that that is their position too?
