Charles Hendry and Chris Huhne visit Sellafield

I welcome the fact that the new Energy ministers, Chris Huhne (Secretary of State) and Charles Hendry (Minister of state for Energy) have paid a visit to Sellafield today.

It is obviously important that the new government is aware of the issues facing Sellafield, which is the main employer in the area and has a vital role in British energy policy.

David Moore, chairman of the West Cumbria Site Stakeholders group, told the Whitehaven News that "Although the visit was arranged as a private one, we welcomed the opportunity to ask Chris Huhne about the government's energy policy, particularly to get a clear commitment to nuclear new build, clean-up and decomissioning, and the timescales."
