Hinkley Point C

EDM number 585 in 2017-19, proposed by Paul Flynn on 23/11/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Consumers, Electricity, Energy and Nuclear power.

That this House is shocked by the Public Accounts Committee's conclusion that no one was protecting the interests of energy consumers in the deal to construct Hinkley Point C which the Committee conclude will impose large extra costs on the average annual household electricity bill and disproportionately hit the poorest; condemns the failure to consider better value renewable sources of energy; agrees that the Government locked consumers into an expensive deal despite the case for Hinkley Point C weakening during its negotiations; is appalled that consumers will now pay £30 billion in top-up payments, five times more than the £6 billion promised in 2013; and believes that any future plans for new nuclear power must be assessed by the financial calamity of Hinkley.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
