The Government believes that nuclear has an important role to play as we transition to a low-carbon economy. Ministers and officials meet developers regularly. Our commitment to new nuclear is demonstrated in the development of the first new nuclear power station in a generation at Hinkley Point C and underpinned our landmark £200m Nuclear Sector Deal. The forthcoming Energy White Paper will set out our approach to new nuclear.
