French trade unions consider further legal action against EDF’s Hi8nkley nuclear project

justiceflag-franceNow French want to block Hinkley nuclear plant with unions set to launch second legal challenge By CITY & FINANCE REPORTER FOR THE DAILY MAIL, 2 Aug 16 Fresh fears have emerged over the future of Hinkley Point nuclear power station as French trade unions look poised to launch a second legal challenge against the project.

EDF gave its long-awaited approval for funding of the £18billion nuclear plant last week.

But yesterday it was claimed board members were only given 48 hours to read the 2,500-page proposal document before voting on the investment.  Complaints about the brevity of the two-day window have prompted French trade unions, who voted against the project, to consider further legal action against the energy company.

It follows an earlier legal bid from the unions over claims EDF did not provide enough information during the consultation on Hinkley.

EDF declined to comment.
