Question for written answer E-006055-13
to the Commission
Rule 117
Jo Leinen (S&D)

 Subject:  Dumping of nuclear waste at sea
 Answer in writing 

Over 100 000 tonnes of radioactive waste are lying on the seabed off Europe’s coasts. Radioactive substances are leaking into the sea as a result of damage to the drums in which the waste is stored. The ocean dumping of nuclear waste now constitutes an enormous threat to the environment which individual Member States are not in a position to tackle at national level.

1. Does the Commission intend to take action at European level with regard to the dumpingof nuclear waste at sea?

2. To what extent should the polluters be required to recover the waste they have dumped?
