#NuclearCommissionSAust – next steps outlined by pro nuclear Premier of South Australia

Weatherill glow

Premier Jay Weatherill tabled a Statement (9/02/16) outlining the progress and next steps for the South Australian Nuclear Fuel Chain (sorry, they call it “Cycle”) Royal Commission.

Following the release on February 15, of its “tentative findings“, the Commission will hold  a five week “comment period”, during which  public meetings will be held in:

Adelaide, Port Pirie, Port Augusta, Whyalla, Port Lincoln, Mt Gambier, Ceduna, Renmark, and Aboriginal communities in the Far North and West Coast.

On 6 May, the Commission will present its final report.

Next – community discussion between May and August.

“Once we have the findings, I would anticipate some engagement with the Commonwealth Government about the final report” 

Then “a period of decision making where Government will need to assess the evidence gathered by the Commission, and the feedback from the community before outlining its full response to the Royal Commission

I expect to provide a full response to the Royal Commission to the Parliament before the end of sitting this year.”
