Still no answers on Euratom

Mike Clancy, general secretary of Prospect, responding to the publication of the government’s position paper on leaving Euratom commented: “Whilst it is welcome that the government has set out its principles for Euratom, there is little reassurance in the new paper about the scale of the challenge facing the UK.

“The risks to the NHS, British nuclear sector and high-skilled jobs in the industry are too great to get this wrong.

“We need much more clarity over the government’s legal advice and the transitional arrangements necessary to protect UK research and jobs.

“We urge the government to listen to expert advice and to set up a working group on the future of Euratom, including representatives of the nuclear workforce, to advise on how to achieve this goal.”
