More encouraging signs about Nuclear Power
A government spokeswoman appeared to confirm this evening that today's cabinet meeting took a positive view of New nuclear build.
Asked if any minister had spoken in opposition when the cabinet discussed whether to give the green light to new nuclear plants, the spokeswoman said: "Not that I'm aware of."
Nuclear and energy issues had been the main items on the agenda at Tuesday's cabinet meeting and there had been a "very good discussion," the spokeswoman said.
An announcement is expected on Thursday.
