To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what steps he is taking to ensure that EDF contribute to road and rail infrastructure in east Suffolk in advance of the construction of Sizewell C nuclear power station; and will he make a statement.
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave him on 11 April 2019 to Question 242092. For clarification, while that answer reflects a general principle of how mitigations for planning impacts are considered, that principle applies to specific types of infrastructure (such as road and rail) as well as to specific examples of that infrastructure (such as the A12 road).
I note that EDF consulted about the Sizewell proposals from 4 January 2019 – 29 March 2019 and that members of the public and other interested parties were invited to provide their views on those proposals.
