The Chancellor George Osborne will agree a deal this week that will see a Chinese firm become one of the main players in the building of a new nuclear power plant for Hinkley Point. It's a move that is welcomed by businesses in the area that will benefit.
Bob Constantine reports.
The Government announced in 2010 that Hinkley Point was one of 8 sites suitable for a new reactor. Then in 2011, EDF submitted a plan for development of a new reactor at the site, Hinkley Point C, and a new nuclear licence was awarded in 2012 - the first since 1987.
But since then the Government and EDF have been negotiating over the proposals, with a major sticking point being the guaranteed price paid for energy produced by the new reactor.
If the construction goes ahead the reactor could supply up to 7% of the country's energy needs.
The Energy Secretary Ed Davey has hinted that a new deal to build a reactor at Hinkley Point is close. Speaking at the weekend he said that Britain's energy sector was set to benefit from billions of pounds of investment from the Far East.
Mr Davey said "The Chinese, along with the Japanese and the Koreans are very interested in the opportunities in the British nuclear sector. I think it is really possible we will see massive Chinese investment".
Recent reports have suggested that the Chinese are set to take a stake in the consortium seeking to build the new reactor at Hinkley Point in Somerset
Taunton's Liberal Democrat MP Jeremy Browne was sacked to give other members of the party a turn in government, Nick Clegg said.
In a letter explaining why he had removed the MP from his job as Home Office minister, the Deputy Prime Minister said he was keen to "provide the opportunity for as many in our ranks as possible to contribute their skills to Ministerial office".
The decision to kick him out of government, particularly from such a high profile role, was one of the surprise moves of the reshuffle.
Mr Clegg wrote: "It is always very difficult to move colleagues out of government but as you know, I have always been keen that we provide the opportunity for as many in our ranks as possible to contribute their skills to Ministerial office during this Parliament
so that, just as the Government has benefited from your contribution over the past three years, it can also gain from those of other colleagues in the remaining years of this parliament.
"I am immensely grateful to you for your commitment and support over the past few years. You have made a major contribution to this historic coalition government and as one of the very few ministers who have served in two departments,
I have no doubt there will be an opportunity for your experience to be deployed in government in the future."
Mr Browne, who also served as a minister in the Foreign Office, said he remained supportive of the Government but cautioned against "lapsing into transactional trade-offs and deferred decision making".
He added: "I supported your election as party leader and I admired your decision to take our party into government.
"Easy and permanent opposition may be alluring to some but you are right not to find it seductive."
David Heath, the MP for Somerton & Frome is the latest casualty of the government re-shuffle. He has been sacked from his post at the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, with Lib Dem MP Dan Rogerson appointed to a junior ministerial job in the department.
Taunton MP Jeremy Browne is one of several senior Liberal Democrats who have lost their jobs in today's coalition reshuffle.
In one of the biggest shocks so far, Mr Browne, on the right of the party and touted by some as a future leader, has been replaced as Home Office Minister by Transport Minister Norman Baker.
Bath MP Don Foster, who was previously a junior minister in the Department for Communities and Local Government, has replaced Alistair Carmichael as Lib Dem chief whip in a reshuffle. Mr Carmichael is the new Scottish Secretary.
