Energy Prices debate

Speaking during an Opposition Day debate on energy prices and the energy market, Charles Walker asks whether the previous Government should have increased generating capacity and built more nuclear power stations over the past 15 years.

Mr Charles Walker (Broxbourne) (Con): Does the hon. Lady agree that we should have been increasing generating capacity and building more nuclear power stations over the past 15 years?

Caroline Flint: That is why, as we left office, we set in train the opportunity to put in place a more balanced energy generation selection for everyone, and that is why many of those policies are now being carried forward by the present Government.
