National Grid must provide a full account of what went wrong and why – Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Shadow Business and Energy Secretary, commenting on last night’s power cuts, said:

“Disruption on this scale is unacceptable. National Grid – which in May posted £1.8 billion in profits and increased dividend payouts to shareholders – must urgently provide a full account of what went wrong, and why.

“Integrating large amounts of renewable energy will require planned and coordinated investments in our networks – which is why Labour has committed to taking the grid back into public hands.”
