"The important thing is to focus on our long-term energy security. That means more renewables, more offshore wind and indeed more nuclear." The Rt. Hon. Rishi Sunak MP, Prime Minister, October 2022
"Sizewell C can play a vital role in levelling up and regenerating local economies; providing jobs during construction; and leaving a legacy of skills that bring lasting benefits to places such as Lowestoft and Waveney." The Hon. Pete Aldous MP, Member of Parliament for Waveney, Suffolk, May 2022
"On Sizewell, we're in favour of it. It will bring high-quality jobs, and that's very important in a region such as the eastern region." The Rt Hon. Keir Starmer MP, Labour Party Leader, September 2021
"Because the wind doesn't always blow and the sun doesn't always shine, we will need another critical source of cheap and reliable energy and that is nuclear." The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP, Chancellor of the Exchequer, March 2023
