Chancellor George Osborne said Chinese investment in British nuclear power delivers "a good deal".
Speaking during a visit to a nuclear power station in Taishan, China, Mr Osborne said: "We're delivering a good deal for the British taxpayer and we're going to make sure of course that the very stringent British rules on safety are applied.
"The Chinese investment in British nuclear power means British taxpayers' money can be used instead for building schools and hospitals and in the long-term British families get lower and more stable energy bills."
The Chancellor's agreement with China opens the door to investment in Britain's new generation of nuclear power plants, but at what cost?
The Chancellor has given formal Government approval for Chinese state-run firms to buy into British nuclear power - should we be worried?
