Womack: Tidal Lagoon's clear and transparent audit further proof that Westminster must back the plan

10 July 2018

Green Party deputy leader Amelia Womack has welcomed the decision from Tidal Lagoon Power to respond to the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy with the release of a full audit of their finances [1].

Womack, who visited the proposed site of the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon yesterday [2], felt that the audit was a clear sign that the company were willing to conduct their business transparently and proof that the project made financial sense.

Womack said:

“This project makes complete financial sense, especially compared to the nuclear plant on Anglesey and it is great to see Tidal Lagoon Power making that case. It continues to baffle that the Westminster Government are seemingly fully behind the Wyfla plant despite all the questions surrounding it.

“It’s not too late to scrap the Wyfla plant and back a cleaner and cheaper solution to Wales’ energy future.”
