Letter: Trouble with Thorp

Click to follow
Sir: According to Tom Wilkie (9 March), John Guinness of British Nuclear Fuels says that the Thermal Oxide Reprocessing Plant (Thorp) 'epitomises all that John Major is talking about in the reindustrialisation of Britain'. Indeed? Thorp is vastly over-budget, years late in construction, and designed to do something almost no one wants done any more. If this is Mr Major's vision of reindustrialising Britain, we are in even deeper trouble than we thought.

Yours sincerely,


Amersham, Buckinghamshire
