Statement from John Dugmore, chief executive of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce on the Government's delay to Hinkley Point C

“Since the Brexit vote, Suffolk Chamber of Commerce  has been urging Government to boost business confidence by accelerating its approval of major infrastructure projects. 

“Suffolk Chamber of Commerce welcomes the Board of EDF's approval of the final investment decision on Hinkley Point C. This could have helped to unlock further progress for Sizewell C. However, the UK Government’s decision to review the project is unhelpful and counter-productive. It creates unnecessary uncertainty among Suffolk’s business community at a time when they need and deserve a boost.

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. 

“The building of a new nuclear power station would boost our economy both during construction and once it is up and running. 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.
