Statement on Wylfa Newydd

Statement on Wylfa Newydd

If the rumours and press speculation prove to be correct this will be a huge blow for the whole region and Wales.

I will be putting pressure on the government to provide clarity as it is a major stakeholder in the project. I want to know if there is a plan B and is there a Brexit factor, certainly the government appears to have lost focus here.

The Welsh Government and local authorities have invested a lot of time, money and effort in the North Wales Growth Bid and a number of important Wylfa-related projects could now be at risk.

Wylfa Newydd offers huge job and career opportunities, with peak jobs estimated at 6000 – 8000, and many further indirect jobs in the wider supply chain.

I will continue to work with stakeholders and cross-party on this matter.
