Lib MP happy to store nuclear waste 9 News 6 Mar 15 Federal Liberal backbencher Rowan Ramsey says he’d happily store nuclear waste on his South Australian farm.

The federal government has called for landholders to nominate sites for a national dump to store nuclear waste generated by medical, research and industrial processes.

Mr Ramsey, whose massive electorate of Grey covers almost 92 per cent of SA, says there’s nothing to fear about nuclear waste.

 He suggested that plans to store the waste near Woomera in central SA could be revived, and flagged that his own 2400ha farm could even be an option.

“I am very relaxed about the idea that they might find a good site in my electorate again,” he told ABC radio on Thursday……

The state Labor government’s royal commission into the nuclear industry is looking at the prospects of nuclear waste facilities in SA.

But with the inquiry set to stretch into 2016, it’s unlikely SA will endorse a site before the federal government’s nomination process closes on May 5. http://www.9news.com.au/national/2015/03/05/12/37/lib-mp-happy-to-store-nuclear-waste#IEXPPdGpfI11lEs0.99
