Greens: Swansea Tidal Lagoon decision proves there is no plan for Wales’ energy future

25 June 2018

The Green Party of England and Wales today reacted to the news that the Government will not fund the Swansea Tidal Lagoon project.

Deputy Leader Amelia Womack, who stood for the party in Cardiff during the 2016 Assembly Election, chastised the announcement and described it as a terrible blow to Wales’ prospects as an environmentally sustainable nation.

Womack said:

“This is a bitter, dismal day for Wales and our clean energy future. This was a fantastic opportunity to use the country’s existing Green potential to provide for its citizens, as this pilot scheme could have been expanded across the country.

“Once again, we have seen that the Westminster Government has no vision for what a fossil-free future will look like.”
