Voting for Democracy in Wales

Coral Hill pupil at Willows High School Cardiff with Neil MCEvoy at the Assembly


INTRODUCING THE NEXT GENERATION to the work of the Assembly and its elected members is vital for the future of  democracy in Wales, says South Wales Central AM, Neil McEvoy.

Coral Hill, a pupil from Willows High School, Cardiff visited the Senedd to discover more about the work of members of the Welsh parliament, as part of her studies for the Welsh BAC (Baccalaureate). Coral chose to research and write an essay on granting 16 year olds the right to vote in future Assembly elections.

Neil McEvoy said, "I was delighted to meet Coral and answer questions from such a well informed next time voter. It is vital we give our young people every opportunity to learn how our democracy works, and how we take up the issues which will affect their future.

"I am always very pleased to be able to meet pupils from South Wales Central in their schools or at the Senedd, to talk about how we strive in the Assembly to make Wales a better place to live and work."

What's hidden in the Hinkley mud?

What’s Hiding in Hinkley’s Mud?

Fresh doubts were raised at Neil McEvoy AM’s weekly press briefing (13/02/2018) about tests made for radioactivity in the mud which energy company EDF proposes to dump in Cardiff’s inshore waters this summer.

Neil McEvoy AM invited independent researchers Dr Chris Busby, Tim Deere-Jones and Richard Bramhall to present new evidence at his weekly briefing for the Welsh media in the Assembly. They voiced concerns that previous findings of radioactive particles in river mud near Hinkley and Sellafield nuclear power plants should have been matched in data relied on for issuing EDF’s licence to dump, but were not.

They claimed this strongly suggests that important evidence has been missed, overlooked or possibly left out, with recent testing limited in its scope and unable to detect the ‘hot particles’ of plutonium, uranium and other nuclides that can lead to a legacy of dangerous effects. They pointed out that the limited set of most recent samples have been destroyed and cannot be re-tested.

Together they called for the internationally recognised precautionary principle to apply – that as there is an unknown but predictable potential risk from sediment at the outfall of a nuclear facility where levels of radioactive particles have increased, adequate testing of the mud must take place there before EDF removes 300,000 tonnes for dumping in water only 2.8 km from Cardiff.

Neil McEvoy AM said “I’m not in a position to be able to endorse these findings, but I believe they raise questions which, despite my pressing the relevant bodies and the Labour government in the Assembly repeatedly, have so far gone unanswered. If the answers are known, they should be made public – if they are not known, then the dumping should not go ahead until tests are done.

“The costs of testing are trivial when set against the potential health costs should the bland reassurances given turn out to be mistaken. Not only will the health of people along the length of the south Wales coast, and Cardiff in particular, be put at risk, but also wildlife in an internationally important and protected location”.
