Nuclear Decommissioning Authority Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Nuclear Decommissioning Authority,

Having seen on the GDF campaign website that Government has asked RWM and RWM has agreed to: "plan for, and build, a GDF" - please disclose the Contract between Government and RWM by which RWM is to both "plan for" and also to "build" "A GDF" (I.e. one, singular GDF).

The point of highlighting that RWM have been asked by Government to build a (single) GDF is to highlight that this is against the Policy prescribed in the 2014 White Paper. (Where Government state that they merely "favour" a single GDF but do not rule-out multiple GDFs.

Additionally, it appears that the Secretary of State has not Designated RWM as "the [sole] developer" [of all GDFs].

Yours faithfully,

Darryl J Lee (Mr.)

Gadawodd Darryl J Lee (Mr.) anodiad ()

Despite being the only body established under the Energy Act 2004 to secure [civil] nuclear decommissioning in the UK, the NDA "does not hold a copy of any contract between Government and RWM" in-spite of RWM being a wholly owned subsidiary of the NDA and despite the NDA being Statutorily Duty-bound to finance "decommissioning and cleaning-up" which includes the construction of any building or structure to be used in connection with decommissioning and cleaning up such as a GDF.

This leads me to suspect that (a) RWM has NOT been asked by Government (remember, "NDA is not part of Government") to "plan-for and build a" (Singular) GDF - so has made a false misrepresentation on its GDF Campaign Website, OR (b) The NDA is mistaken.
