A major union has called on the Government to step in and take control of a “stuttering” £10bn nuclear energy project which could safeguard 1000 jobs in Lancashire. GMB’s call comes after a bid by Chinese state-backed nuclear company CGN for a stake in the Moorside power station scheme which would have fuel supplied by Westinghouse’s Springfields plant at Salwick. The union says the China money is not the solution to the problems Moorside scheme has faced – Toshiba’s US arm Westinghouse, which is producing reactors for Moorside, going bust which led to Toshiba chairman Shigenori Shiga stepping down and French investors Engie quitting the deal.
