Preston MP Mark Hendrick hosted a discussion in the House of Commons over the future of nuclear energy in the UK.
The Labour member, together with fellow MP Albert Owen, brought together a top-level panel including Energy Minister Michael Fallon to discuss the industry in front of an audience from both Parliament and nuclear businesses.
“The event was very successful and we saw a constructive engagement,” said Mr Hendrick. “The Minister went away with a great understanding of the industry and also MP’s concerns. I will be following this event up with a discussion document to circulate to both my parliamentary colleagues and industry representatives.”
Other speakers included Labour’s energy spokesman Tom Greatrex and Paul Harris an executive from Nuclear Rolls Royce.
