David Morris raised the issue with Theresa May at Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday. Mr Morris asked Mrs May: “Would the Prime Minister help me, in any way possible, with my already ongoing campaign to get the third nuclear power station built quicker in Heysham, the tentatively linked Heysham 3 Power Station?” He also thanked her for putting him in touch with Powerhouse Minister Jake Berry to help with another ongoing campaign to get an Enterprise Zone to help businesses in Heysham. Mrs May replied: “Well once again my Honorable Friend is campaigning tirelessly for his constituency, and I welcome his efforts across a number of issues as he has referred to. “We do need affordable clean energy to keep the lights on and in the decades ahead and he’s absolutely right that nuclear energy is an important part of our energy mix. “Now as regards to the particular site: I believe that there is land next to the existing Heysham Nuclear Power Station, which is one of the eight sites in the UK that has been designated for new nuclear build.” Speaking afterwards, Mr Morris said he was happy with Mrs May’s answer.
