Nuclear waste repository in Bure: regular exchanges between France and Luxembourg?

The French environmental authority raised many criticisms in its opinion from January 13th on the proposed nuclear waste storage center in Bure. DP MPs Max Hahn and Gusty Graas wanted to know from the competent ministers, whether they were aware of what action the French authorities intend to take on this opinion, and whether there are regular exchanges between France and Luxembourg on this topic.

« Dans son avis du 13 janvier dernier sur le Centre industriel de stockage géologique de déchets nucléaires à Bure, situé à une centaine de kilomètres de la frontière luxembourgeoise, l’Autorité environnementale française a soulevé de nombreuses critiques, insuffisances et incertitudes face à ce projet controversé.

Dans ce contexte nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de l’Environnement, du Climat et du Développement durable, à Madame la Ministre de l’Intérieur, à Madame la Ministre de la Santé, à Monsieur le Ministre de l’Énergie et à Monsieur le Ministre des Affaires étrangères et européennes :

– Le gouvernement a-t-il déjà été informé des suites que les autorités françaises entendent donner à cet avis ?

– Quand aura lieu la prochaine réunion de la Commission mixte franco-luxembourgeoise de la sécurité nucléaire ?

– Est-ce que le centre de stockage à Bure figurera à l’ordre du jour de cette réunion ?

– En dehors des réunions de la Commission mixte, le gouvernement est-il régulièrement informé par les autorités françaises sur les derniers développements en matière de sécurité nucléaire, notamment au sujet des centrales nucléaires ainsi que des centres de stockage en région frontalière ? »

Answer

In a meeting of the Franco-Luxembourg mixed commission in early February, the subject of the nuclear final storage in Bure was discussed. This commission also provides the institutional framework for regular exchanges between the two countries on the subject of nuclear security. But also on a technical level, there are regular contacts, where the question of the terminal storage is also addressed.

DP MPs Carole Hartmann and Mandy Minella have asked the relevant ministers whether paid dispensation from work or an equivalent mechanism will be introduced for pregnant self-employed workers.
