The Institution of Civil Engineers
The Institution of Civil Engineers is a professional association founded in 1818 based in central London representing civil engineers. The majority of its members are British engineers, but it also has members in other countries around the world. In 2003, its total membership stood at around 80,000.
The Institution is a long-term supporter of nuclear power. In November 2005, just weeks before the energy review was announced, Gordon Masterton, the new president of the Institution of Civil Engineers, said "It's time the Government bit the bullet and encouraged a wider national debate so that the public have the facts about our energy options. With the general election behind them, the Government needs to tackle an issue they seem in fear of confronting, and give the go-ahead for a new generation of nuclear stations before the threat of blackouts becomes more frequent." 
A January 6, 2006 Letter to the Editor of The Times signed amongst others by Tom Foulkes, the Director-General of the ICE, urged the Government "not to delay decisions that might prevent nuclear power remaining an integral part of the UK's future energy mix since we do not believe there are any technical or safety reasons why it should not do so...Besides reducing CO2 emissions, a new generation of nuclear power stations could enhance security of energy supply."
