  • Government's nuclear policy 'lacking credibility', according to House of Lords

    British hopes of seeing a raft of shiny new nuclear power stations coming online by 2025 have suffered another blow after peers denounced the government’s plans as ‘simply lacking credibility’.

    The coalition has become ‘complacent’, with an ‘absence of leadership and strategic thinking’ over the programme, the House of Lords science and technology select committee has found.
