The article reports on the British government's energy review that will produce a decision whether the construction of new nuclear power plants will be part of the power generation plan of the government. However, it seems that the government might have been rushed into the review. The energy review will focus on measures to deliver the goals of the 2003 Energy White Paper. It will also include a decision on whether new nuclear plant should be central to British energy policy.
