- the Government publish clear policy milestones for all aspects of the MRWS Program and include an assessment of their progress against these milestones in an annual report
- CoRWM formally provide the Government with independent advice on draft, as well as established, policies that have implications for the management of radioactive waste
- CoRWM contain more members with experience of business and practical on-site operations and engineering
Commenting on the report, Lord Broers, Chairman of the inquiry, said: "Previous reports from the Committee on this subject have all expressed disappointment at the slow progress being made by the Government on this important issue, and we remain concerned that there isn’t a great enough sense of urgency from either the Government or CoRWM to push forward the development of a geological disposal facility as quickly as possible. We believe that CoRWM could play a more active role in driving forward the MRWS program by scrutinizing, and if necessary reporting on, the Government’s progress."
