§ Mr. Michael Spicer
The CEGB's application for my right hon. Friend's consent to construct a PWR nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C is currently the subject of a public inquiry.
My right hon. Friend will wish to consider the inspector's report before deciding whether or not to grant his consent to the CEGB's application.
The construction of new nuclear power stations in England and Wales is a matter for the CEGB.
