answer text <p>This Government was the first to give the go ahead to a nuclear power station in a generation. The percentage of electricity generated by nuclear in 2010 was 16.4%, in 2017 it was 20.8% (DUKES, 2011 &amp; 2018). We want to see a diverse range of sources for Britain’s energy production. Toshiba’s decision to withdraw from the Moorside project does not change this, and due to the long lead up time to the project it will not affect security of supply. Moorside still remains a potential site for new nuclear, and I am willing to meet with any viable proponents wishing to develop the site.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Department laid a Statutory Instrument in Parliament on 19<sup>th</sup> December 2018 which will bring all direct EU Ecodesign legislation that is operative before exit day into UK law.

answer text <p>The Government rigorously assesses the capacity of the UK to counter non-military attacks through the Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) process. In light of the ever-changing national security environment and in support of the SDSR 2015, the National Security Council (NSC) commissioned a focused National Security Capability Review (NSCR), published in March 2018. This set out how we could develop, deliver and deploy our considerable national security capabilities to maximum collective effect to address the increasing and diversifying threats to our national security, including from non-military attacks.</p><p> </p><p>The NSCR also introduced the Fusion Doctrine, which seeks to use our full range of security, economic and influence capabilities to maximum effect in pursuit of our national security goals.</p> more like this
