Wylfa nuclear site: Welsh Affairs Committee Chair welcomes announcement

22 May 2024

Responding to the news that Wylfa in Anglesey has been chosen as the UK’s next nuclear power station, Welsh Affairs Committee Chair Stephen Crabb MP said:

“Today’s announcement is a welcome step forward for a site that has long shown promise for nuclear power. 


During our inquiry into nuclear energy in Wales, several witnesses made clear that the Wylfa site was a prime candidate to be the UK’s next nuclear power station. Having already bought the site, I am pleased that the Government has recognised this and is pressing ahead with its plans.


Developing the site will take some time; I look forward to hearing more detail on the Government’s plans, including on opportunities for SMEs, training and investment in North Wales.”
