I would remind Senator Wong that the company has already said in its statement today:

... the company has not put forward a proposal to build nuclear power plants in Australia.

I support government policy, which is that nuclear power must be on the table for Australia’s future energy needs, particularly if you are serious about seeking to reduce Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. It is the Labor Party that is completely hollow on the question of climate change. They are not serious about the possibility of nuclear power in this country. They have no credibility whatsoever.
