Industrial Strategy
,
commenting on the release of Charles Hendry’s independent report backing the
building of Swansea Tidal Lagoon, said:

“We very much welcome this report and its recommendations.

as we’ve seen in other renewable technologies.

Labour backing it months ago. It’s time to stop dithering and get it
built.”
