MEPs urge suspension of Kroes's nuclear remit

Monday, October 8, 2007

Green MEPs have urged the European commission to suspend EU competition commissioner Neelie Kroes's responsibilities for nuclear issues following her remarks in support of the sector on Monday. In an open letter to commission president Jose Manuel Barroso the MEPs question the impartiality of her decisions and call for a re-evaluation of the recent EU approval of French aid to a new Finnish reactor. A spokesman for Ms Kroes told ENDS the call was "ludicrous", arguing that all decisions
are taken on competition grounds.
