Motion text

That this House welcomes the view of the Financial Times that Britain is saddled with the worst of all worlds on the Hinkley Point C nuclear project; reinforces the paper's belief that the Government has effectively written the French company, EDF, a long-dated option to sell the UK unproven technology at an extremely generous price; believes the case for halting Hinkley Point C is becoming hard to refute; is alarmed that the EDF has yet to commit itself to the project because of its massive €37 billion debt; agrees with the Financial Times that prolonged delays, multi billion pound cost overruns and technical problems at Flamanville may cause construction at Hinkley Point to be scrapped; and calls for a full debate and a reappraisal of the project.
