A message from Tony Fountain: Clarity, focus and delivery
After much anticipation and speculation, we now know the outcome of the Spending Review, in headline terms at least. It is very clear to us in the NDA that our Ministerial team at DECC – Chris Huhne, Charles Hendry and Lord Marland, supported very ably by officials - have understood the vitally important task of cleaning up the nuclear legacy and have fought hard to secure a level of funding that will enable significant further progress to be made over the next four years.
On the face of it, we have an increased budget with average annual expenditure looking to be in the region of £3 billion a year. But there is much to understand behind this figure.
