To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, pursuant to the Answer of 4 June 2018 to Question 147430 on Nuclear Power Stations: Construction, what criteria his Department will use to decide for the release of future publications on value for money assessments of new nuclear power stations.

The Government published a value for money assessment for Hinkley Point C at the time of the deal being signed.

As I said in my response on 4th June 2018 to Question 147430 the Government will ensure that appropriate value for money assessments are completed before any final deal on a new nuclear project is signed and will consider releasing future publications at the appropriate time.

As my rt. hon. friend the Secretary of State committed in his statement to Parliament on 4th June 2018, the Department will continue to keep Parliament informed through the negotiation process.
