Statement from John Dugmore, chief executive of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce on today’s EDF Energy board meeting

"Suffolk Chamber of Commerce believes that the nuclear industry has been good for the county’s economy. It has been good for Suffolk thanks to both the jobs created directly and indirectly and in terms of investment in the skills base of the local workforce over many decades.

We have been working closely with EDF Energy through our local supply chain website to ensure that as many local businesses have a chance to pick up contracts as possible should Sizewell C get the go-ahead.
