Theresa May made no reference to the tax office closure in her reply, focusing on the Wylfa nuclear power station site. PM May said: “No it is not. On Hitachi and the Wylfa site, we offered a package of support that no previous Government had been willing to consider of one third equity, all-debt financing and a strike price of no more than £75 per MWh. “Ultimately, we could not at that stage reach an agreement among all the parties, and Hitachi decided on a commercial basis to suspend the project, but it has made clear that it wishes to continue discussions with the Government on bringing forward new nuclear at Wylfa, and we will support those discussions.” Speaking outside the Chamber, Mr Lucas described the government’s decision was one of the worst he has seen in 18 years as an MP.
