OPINION: Editorial - BNFL sale must focus on safety
The partial privatisation of British Nuclear Fuels (BNFL), the
government-owned company which reprocesses nuclear fuels and
decommissions power stations, was described by one city analyst as ’just
about the hardest privatisation you could imagine’. For those promoting
it, the sell-off of BNFL represents a much greater challenge than the
government’s disposal of utilities has over the last 15 years.
