Hinkley New Nuclear
A Question for Parliament… has the “no public subsidy” commitment been dropped?
and A Request to sign Early Day Motion EDM 619 – CONTINGENT LIABILITY RELATING TO HINKLEY POINT C POWER STATION
EDF are currently selling off assets to try and avoid their credit rating being junked.
In anticipation of EDFs probable inability to totally fund their 66% share, has the government dropped the ‘no public subsidy’ commitment in over that they can have unfettered use of taxpayer money to subsidise the diabolic project of new nuclear at Hinkley?
A group of MPs, led by Newport West MP Paul Flynn, have slammed a plan to
build the £25billion nuclear power station at Hinkley Point, as opposition
to the Government’s nuclear energy policy gathers steam. An Early Day Motion
that calls the plan to build at Hinkley Point ‘an act of desperation’ has
already been signed by 14 MPs.
Please consider signing
EDM 619 – CONTINGENT LIABILITY RELATING TO HINKLEY POINT C POWER STATION
That this House objects to the Departmental Minute from the Department for
Energy and Climate Change, dated 21 October 2015, concerning contingent
liabilities relating to the entering into of contracts regarding the Hinkley
Point C power station; and directs the Department to ensure a full
examination is undertaken of the nature, extent and consequences of the
contingent liability which it proposes to incur, including any associated
risk to public funds and impacts on energy bills, before proceeding any
further with accepting this liability.
