The article speculates on the decision of the British government to include nuclear reactor designs in a review of energy policy. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) was asked by the government to look at the potential role of pre-licensing assessments of candidate designs for new nuclear plant. HSE was also asked to look at other energy infrastructure elements including the need for gas storage. Energy Minister Malcolm Wicks said the decision about the recommendations would be made by a cabinet-level committee chaired by the prime minister. INSETS: 'Make it quick';Unclear reaction.
