Will the Australian Labor Party cave in to the nuclear lobby?

election Australia 2016It is best to send emails or letters in your own  words. However, here’s an example anyway.
This website will follow with interest – the politicians who bothered to answer, and whether or not they will stick to Labor’s policy.

Dear …….
As the Federal Election approaches, I need to know what is you position on the nuclear issue.
The 2015 National Policy Platform states:
  1. Labor will:
  • Vigorously and totally oppose the ocean dumping of radioactive waste; 
  • Prohibit the establishment of nuclear power plants and all other stages of the nuclear fuel cycle in Australia; 
  • Fully meet all Australia’s obligations as a party to the NPT; and 
  • Remain strongly opposed to the importation and storage of nuclear waste that is sourced from overseas in Australia.
The South Australian Labor government t is promoting a move to import nuclear wastes.  In view of this, the National Labor Party will surely be re-examining the national policy.
Before deciding on my vote, I need to be sure of Labor policy on this issue.
Please tell me:
Will you vote to keep the present Labor policy as above, or will you vote to change it?
Yours faithfully
