Unions in the UK have called for clarity on the future of the Moorside nuclear station project in Cumbria, northwest England, and are seeking an urgent meeting with business secretary Greg Clark to “chart a speedy way forward, including the commitment of public money”. Unite, the country’s largest union, said in a statement: “It is vital for the Cumbrian economy in the decades ahead that we have crystal clear clarity on the future of this project.” Unite said it wants a meeting with Mr Clark to flesh out details of the government’s approach. Such a meeting has become more urgent following reports last week of restructuring at NuGen and possible redundancies, the union said. GMB, the energy union, said has long argued the government should take a stake in the financing of the £15bn project rather than leaving it at the mercy of foreign companies.
