Yesterday in parliament - Britain's energy needs (extract)

Mr Blair questioned whether the UK can meet its future energy and environmental needs without nuclear power. He said renewable energy must form a larger part of the UK energy mix but stressed nuclear might be "part of the answer". He said: "I still think there is a major challenge - and this is what the energy review will answer in the next few months - as to whether we can really make sure we meet both our energy needs and our environmental targets without nuclear power in the mix."

The stakes for Bath could be every bit as high as they are now for Highland.
