GMB, the energy union, has welcomed Government plans to take a 20 per cent stake in the Sizewell C nuclear power station in Suffolk

Charlotte Childs, GMB National Officer, said:

“GMB welcomes this move, which will help safeguard the UK’s energy future and is the next step on the road to net zero.

“But this should be the start, not the end of investment in new nuclear. 

“Ministers must now commit to Wylfa and other new reactors - including a series of SMRs in Moorside, Dungeness and beyond.

“We urgently need a new National Policy Statement on new nuclear before the existing one expires at end of 2025.’
