Record on wind farm fabrication and construction is just one pitiful example

GMB, the energy union, says ensuring the Government’s ‘Plan for A Green Industrial Revolution’, released today, must include commitments to UK supply chains to deliver good value for the taxpayer.

 Justin Bowden, GMB National Secretary, said:

“Any positive news on jobs, hydrogen and new nuclear from the Government is of course welcome.

“But ensuring the 10-point plan delivers an economic bang for every buck of taxpayer’s money means binding commitments that all those in receipt of these Government subsidies and grants use UK supply chains and therefore generate UK jobs and wealth.

“The record to date on the offshoring of wind farm fabrication and construction is just one pitiful example.”
