PM hosts nuclear industry roundtable
Today the Prime Minister hosted a roundtable of leaders in the nuclear industry – as we continue to take action to boost our domestic energy security.
- Nuclear energy, which currently accounts for around 15 per cent of our electricity generation, is critical to boosting our energy security as we move away from volatile fossil fuels.
- That is why I very much welcome that today the PM hosted a roundtable of leaders in the nuclear industry to discuss domestic energy security and future nuclear projects ahead of our of our British Energy Security Strategy this month - rebuilding the industry destroyed by the Labour Party.
- This will help to remove barriers and progress future nuclear projects, and could lead to vital steps to boost our energy security and independence – as well as bringing more jobs across the United Kingdom.
