Nuclear Power Stations: Contracts

Volume 470: debated on Thursday 17 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform, what steps he will take to ensure that UK firms can bid for contracts to undertake work on nuclear power stations developed by foreign owned companies. (179369)

We have invited companies to bring forward proposals to build new nuclear power stations.

It will be for the private sector to manage these projects, and we are keen that the market chooses the best options for all parts of the projects. Government should not impose conditions on any part of the process that are not designed to ensure that this objective is met.
