Nuclear power - no thanks, says PM

The prime minister says New Zealand has plenty of alternatives, such as hydro, gas, coal and wind power.

Her Australian counterpart may be talking about nuclear power, but Helen Clark is having none of it.

John Howard says his country should start tapping into its rich supplies of uranium, sooner rather than later.

However Miss Clark says New Zealand does not need to follow suit.

She says this country's electricity requirements are not big enough to make nuclear power worthwhile, even if concerns about safety could be allayed.
