Dear Sir,

In a country plagued by health and safety regulations, it is unbelievable that the construction of Sizewell C nuclear power station could go ahead without full emergency guidelines being issued to the public to ensure our optimum safety in the event of an accident. The current Detailed Emergency Planning Zone covers a radius of 2.4 kilometres from the Sizewell site, and only those within the zone have been provided with information, and equipped with the potentially life-saving Potassium Iodate tablets. Such a small Detailed Emergency Planning Zone fails to include the sizeable population of Leiston, and ignores residents in other nearby towns and villages.

Dear sir,

I often think I am part of the Mad Hatters Tea Party! when I read the constant

reporting in your newspaper from business leaders of the commercial opportunities for this area, local government reports and proposals for tourism promotion in our former "Curious Suffolk" in areas of outstanding natural beauty (AONB), SSSI, Heritage Coast and the rest.

And just yesterday,(EADT Oct. 12th.),Therese Coffey, MP for Suffolk Coastal, was sitting amongst innocent young children from Wenhaston Primary School

at the Minsmere bird reserve Discovery centre, giving high praise to this internationally acclaimed site.The next evening there she was at Westminster telling T.V. how thrilled she was at the latest reports that the double nuclear power station project for Sizewell, C&D, was likely to become a welcome reality. This after news of likely funding from China in order that the still nationalised EDF(Electricite De France) might be able to proceed further with its plans. Does Ms.Coffey really have any understanding of the local situation? Scores of acres of sensitive conservation areas will be overwhelmed and destroyed. These have been established over many decades with dedicated hard work and commitment to provide the habitats she was enjoying with these young children, totally deceiving them as to what would result if the project she and others are promoting were to proceed. This is no way to conduct herself as the local MP but she is obviously toeing the party line.

I was interested to read the EADT feature article about the new Sizewell B Visitor Centre. This article informs us, through its local Sizewell B management team, of the investment in a new reception and "softening up" exhibition centre where all of the local population and others can be invited along to be fed a story of how wonderfully safe nuclear power stations are. Primary school children are particularly encouraged with arranged visits too.They, with teaching staff, would be assured that everything is just fine.

They would probably overlook to mention that Sellafield cannot receive any more high risk toxic waste as it is overflowing. On site storage at Sizewell, on this "Heritage Coast", is to be the immediate solution and will become the norm in the future.

Dear Sir

Southwold, Walberswick, Dunwich, Thorpeness, Aldeburgh, Orford.

I could go on adding all the places we know and love on our Heritage Coast. Our Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. All the tourist destinations feted and promoted heavily by tourism bodies, wildlife groups and, not least, by your very own newspaper.

Is the gda process for new build 'completed' or 'incomplete and inconclusive'?

Dear Ms Coffey,

Please find attached the last report of three from Dr John Large
(available here) in which he draws his final conclusions from a year-long examination of the Generic Design Assessment process (GDA) associated with the EPR design and for which the ONR is responsible.

You will recall, Ms Coffey, that at the Yoxford public meeting some weeks ago, you assured us that the GDA process was finished and successfully completed. This report demonstrates quite clearly that such a statement is false and misleading.
