David Cameron has welcomed Hitachi's takeover of Horizon Nuclear Power and the Japanese technology firm's commitment to build four to six new nuclear plants in the UK.
This is a decades-long, multi-billion pound vote of confidence in the UK, that will contribute vital new infrastructure to power our economy.
It will support up to 12,000 jobs during construction and thousands more permanent highly skilled roles once the new power plants are operational, as well as stimulating exciting new industrial investments in the UK’s nuclear supply chain.
I warmly welcome Hitachi as a major new player in the UK energy sector.
