The article deals with the warning issued by Energy and Climate Change Secretary Chris Huhne on unavoidable nuclear decommissioning and radioactive waste costs. A four billion British pound shortfall was identified by Huhne and department officials in the funding needed by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) to cope with the nuclear industry's legacy costs. Huhne thinks that new nuclear build will be an important factor in the future fuel mix of the country. He also expressed his opposition to any form of public subsidy.
