Nuclear Energy

Asked to comment on the alleged cabinet splits over nuclear power funding, the PMOS said that the time to talk about costs would be whenever the energy review was published. That said everyone should bear in mind that whatever was decided there would be costs associated with that. Renewables would cost as well. The idea that you could get something for nothing in this area was a fallacy. The PMOS repeated that the time to talk about costs would be when the energy review was complete. However, it was worth underlining again that the cost of doing nothing was that we would become 80-90% dependent on foreign imports and that we would have to accept that we would miss the carbon emissions target by some distance.
