Hinkley risky and expensive says National Audit Office

Hinkley ‘risky and expensive’ says National Audit Office

Responding to today’s report from the National Audit Office that says the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s deal for Hinkley Point C has locked consumers into a risky and expensive project with uncertain strategic and economic benefits, Molly, who is MEP for the region in which the nuclear power station is to be built, said: “The NAO report confirms what critics have been saying about Hinkley for years. The whole project has been ideologically driven and is economically illiterate. With the price of renewables falling rapidly the deal can no longer pass the government’s own value-for-money test and will burden a generation of consumers and businesses with excessive electricity prices. The Green Party stands by our manifesto commitment to cancel this risky and uneconomic project.
