On 22 April 2013, the Government announced our decision to move forward preparations for the sale of all or part of our one-third shareholding in Urenco. It is Government policy not to continue to hold shares in companies where the shareholding itself does not deliver any policy objective.

No final decision to sell has yet been taken. Any final decision will be dependent on achieving value for money for the taxpayer, informed by a thorough economic assessment of any agreed sale proposition.
