Ura­nium ques­tions lead to “no” an­swer

The Southwest Booster - - LETTER TO THE EDITOR -

Ed­i­tor: Thanks to Er­rol Cas­tle for the list of ques­tions, which he called 'qual­ity ques­tions' out­lined in his let­ter (South­west Booster, June 11 edi­tion), ques­tions which I agree should be an­swered by the ura­nium in­dus­try and/or the gov­ern­ment who com­mis­sioned the re­port by UDP.

I am on the 'other side' of the de­bate from Mr. Cas­tle, (one of those he calls 'the fear­ful') and I am con­vinced the an­swers to his first 10 ques­tions would lead to us de­cid­ing that in our own best in­ter­ests we would just de­cide the an­swer to the 11th - "How can we be­come the world leaders in nu­clear de­vel­op­ment" is "No thanks, we will with­draw from this al­to­gether".

But I also want to hear the an­swers to the ques­tions, and re­sent that the in­dus­try and the UDP re­port and the gov­ern­ment are si­lent on those specifics, par­tic­u­larly in this pub­lic fo­rum process.
