"There’s no foreseeable opportunity for this": Jay declares nuke dump "dead"

Premier Jay Weatherill has officially walked away from one of the major policy hallmarks of his term in Government, pronouncing the nuclear waste dump “dead” and vowing he will not revisit it if he wins another term in office.

The position appears a significant rhetorical shift from his stance last November, when he pledged to keep the debate alive ahead of a future referendum on the issue of nuclear waste storage, after his own Royal Commission found establishing a local industry could net a “$100 billion income in excess of expenditure”.

At the time, his position was seen by critics both inside the Labor Party and more broadly as a refusal to abandon the nuclear dream.

But asked about the future of the nuclear dump at a public forum in Victor Harbor this week, Weatherill declared the project “dead”.

“Yeah it is,” he reaffirmed to InDaily today.
