TRADE UNIONS have welcomed reports that the government will give the go-ahead next week to a new nuclear power station in Suffolk.
The plans for Sizewell will cost £18 billion and will supply 7 per cent of Britain’s electricity when completed.
GMB London energy officer Gary Pearce said: “It will generate reliable zero-carbon emissions electricity for many decades. It will create jobs in a local content supply chain.
“It is essential if the UK is to stand any chance of meeting the net zero-carbon emissions target by 2050.”
Unite assistant general secretary Gail Cartmail said that the plans “would tick a number of key boxes that will benefit the post-pandemic, post-Brexit UK economy.”
“The development of the site on the Suffolk coast would create a source of low carbon and reliable energy, as well as a new generation of skilled ‘green’ employment.
“It will enhance the UK’s energy security at a time of challenging international relations.”
