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.
