Outrage over Britain’s nuclear information blackout: Theresa May’s secretive nuclear deal with Hitachi

The Sun 4th May 2018 , Theresa May urged to come clean on ‘secret’ meeting with Hitachi boss
over £2bn taxpayer bailout for new nuclear power project. Hitachi, responsible for the £20bn new nuclear power plant in Anglesey, North Wales, said the project was unaffordable without state support.

The group is reported to have claimed the £20 billion project due to start generating in the mid-2020s is unaffordable without state support. It’s the latest blow to the Government’s energy policy after huge delays to the construction of the Hinkley Point nuke plant in Somerset.

The PM’s official spokesman would only say Mrs May was taking part in “private meetings” at Downing Street yesterday afternoon. Hannah Martin, Greenpeace’s UK head of energy, said: “The information blackout about government nuclear policy is unjustifiable.

The SNP demanded the Government rule out public money on “failing nuclear projects”. Drew Hendry, the Scottish Nationalists’ business spokesman, said: “This is yet another damning report of the UK government’s misguided nuclear obsession. “Hinkley Point is already set to cost consumers a fortune because of the appalling strike price deal the UK government made with EDF. “The Prime Minister must now categorically rule out any public bail out of this, or any other nuclear project and put an end to secret discussions behind closed doors.”
