Fylde’s MP has said he will keep the pressure on to get nuclear fuel for a new power station made locally. Mark Menzies (pictured) said today that new nuclear power proposals for Moorside in Cumbria could protect hundreds of jobs at the Springfields fuel factory at Salwick. Prime Minister Theresa May declared the nuclear industry has a ‘crucial role’ in our country’s energy needs as she welcomed the proposals from NuGen and Toshiba to develop a new nuclear power plant at Moorside. She made a statement in Parliament after Mr Menzies pressed her on the issue, hoping the new scheme will secure hundreds of jobs at Springfields in Salwick.
