To ask the Secretary of State for Energy whether he has received the inspector's report from the Hinkley Point C public inquiry; and when he intends to announce his decision on Nuclear Electric's application and to publish the report.

I have just received the inspector's report. I shall not be in a position to reach a decision on Nuclear Electric's application until I have thoroughly considered it, but I hope to reach this position by the late summer.The normal procedure for planning inquiries is for the inspector's report to be published at the same time as my Decision. I intend to follow this procedure in the case of the Hinkley Point C inquiry.
