The Best Deal for the UK leaving the EU

This is my reaction to the PM’s speech today outlining the Way Forward on Brexit – and her ambitions for Global Britain.

I hope that most of my constituents will agree with the main points and there is an important point for us all: at the end of the negotiations there will be a vote in Parliament.

Launch of the Independent Hendry Review on Tidal Lagoons

Charles Hendry has published his Independent Review of Tidal Lagoons and I hosted a press conference for him today.

Charles said he had started a sceptic and ended a huge enthusiast for the opportunities in this sector. On the core issues of security of supply, decarbonisation, affordability and economic gain (jobs above all) his Review found strongly in favour of the UK being the world’s first mover of Tidal Lagoons – and he urged the government to get negotiations for a Swansea pathfinder moving as soon as possible, with an aim of seeing electricity generated from the Swansea Tidal Lagoon in 2022.
