Labor believes that nothing is to be gained by politicising the royal commission. The royal commission is a matter for South Australia. It will gather the latest expert advice on complex public policy matters. Federal Labor has a longstanding opposition to nuclear power based on the best available expert advice. South Australia's inquiry will consider a range of critical economic, social, legal and environmental issues. Labor welcomes the commitment of the Commonwealth government to ensure their agencies cooperate fully with the royal commission in areas such as radiation protection, nuclear security policy and international nuclear law.
