Cabinet's green light on proposals 'next step towards approving to nuclear deal'

Opposition parties have slammed government’s decision to proceed with the nuclear procurement plan.

The cabinet had earlier this month granted approval to issue a request for proposals from the nuclear industry.

Energy expert Chris Yelland on Monday said that different vendor countries will put their proposals on the table, including their potential funding models, in a public process due to start in March 2016.

Listen to the full conversation from The Midday Report:

We'll get a very clear idea of what the financing options are after detailed bids are called for. A lot of work will have to be done in between, including a cost-benefit analysis.
