Letter: The truth about Thorp

THE astonishing revelation that the Touche Ross report on the case for the Sellafield Thorp plant never existed "as such" obviously arouses suspicions about the report on the "Mox economic case". The Sellafield Mox plant will undermine attempts to stop the spread of nuclear weapons and entrench reprocessing at Sellafield with devastating effects on the environment. The Mox document was produced by PA Consulting at the request of the Environment Agency, but the version made available for public scrutiny had been stripped of all information that would have facilitated an independent assessment.
