Unite national officer for the energy sector Simon Coop said: “This government cannot duck the fact that Sizewell C should have been given the go-head years ago. Even today, there is no guarantee that this project will progress in 2023 because Boris Johnson’s decision will have to be ratified by the next prime minister 

“Where we needed certainty and a clear road map to energy security, we got more waffle, more hollow words from Boris Johnson.   

“Our members in the energy sector are sick and tired of politicians being all talk and no action. The need for action and a balanced energy policy has never been so urgent. Our energy supply and market are in crisis – the next PM needs to get a grip and, no ifs or buts, deliver on Sizewell C.”
