Nuclear Power Costs

EDM number 1131 in 2016-17, proposed by Paul Flynn on 29/03/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Energy and Nuclear power.

That this House is appalled at the runaway multi-billion pound waste of nuclear costs for a power source that promised to deliver electricity that would be too cheap to meter; notes that Hinkley Point's estimated cost of £6 billion in 2008 leapt to £24 billion and is now estimated to soar to £37 billion, while the cost of nuclear decommissioning, estimated at £55 billion in 2005, is now set at £117 billion and rising; and condemns this and previous Governments' gullible infatuation with the myth of cheap nuclear power that has created a massive burden of debt for the nation that will impoverish public spending for decades.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
