Green MEPs have urged the European commission to suspend EU competition commissioner Neelie Kroes's responsibilities for nuclear issues following her remarks in support of the sector on Monday (EED 02/10/07). In an open letter to commission president José Manuel Barroso the MEPs question the impartiality of her decisions and call for a re-evaluation of the recent EU approval of French aid to a new Finnish reactor (EED 28/09/07). A spokesman for Ms Kroes told ENDS the call was "ludicrous", arguing that all decisions are taken on competition grounds. See European Greens press release.
