Tony Pasin Backs Nuclear Power Talks

Member for Barker Tony Pasin MP has welcomed the announcement that the Standing Committee on the Environment and Energy is set to investigate the nuclear fuel cycle, after a request of the Minister for Energy Minister Angus Taylor.

While there is currently a moratorium on nuclear power generation in Australia, Mr Pasin said this inquiry would consider whether nuclear energy would be feasible and suitable for Australia in the future.

Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese said the government was "off on a frolic" with its nuclear power inquiry because it has no real plan to resolve the nation's energy needs.
