I met with Baroness Penn the Treasury Lord Minister responsible for green finance.
I raised green taxonomy and it’s vital role in bringing investment into the nuclear sector.
The Minister confirmed the governments intention to provide an update on the taxonomy in the forthcoming green finance strategy update in the next few months.
The Minister also reconfirmed the governments intention to include nuclear in the UK Green taxonomy subject to consultation.
Recently I also asked the following written question to HM Treasury
“𝘞𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘥𝘰𝘦𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘊𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘰𝘳 𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘯 𝘵𝘰 𝘶𝘱𝘥𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 2021 𝘎𝘳𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘍𝘪𝘯𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘍𝘳𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬 𝘴𝘰 𝘢𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘰𝘸 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘤𝘦𝘦𝘥𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘎𝘳𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘎𝘪𝘭𝘵𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘦 𝘶𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘤𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘯, 𝘨𝘳𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘕𝘶𝘤𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘳 𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘨𝘺 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘫𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘴?”
I am determined to do everything I can to bring jobs, skilled employment and investment to Ynys Môn - which is why my two main campaigns since the island democratically elected me are new nuclear at Wylfa and Anglesey being a Freeport.
