Green group’s pro-nuclear boss rejects role in ‘rubbish’ inquiry

The Australian:

Mr Bourne said he had been asked to join the taskforce about two hours before Mr Howard announced it on Tuesday. But once he had seen the terms of reference he advised his board the inquiry was “rubbish”.

“It’s an economic inquiry to see how much wealth can be created through uranium exports (and) nuclear power. It’s purely an economic inquiry,” he said.
