|Mick discusses the issues with Tom Greatrex MP|
Mick Lerry, leader of Sedgemoor Labour group and PPC for Bridgwater and West Somerset, said: "Members of the Labour Group were able to discuss the implications of the construction stage of Hinkley C and how it was important to avoid "boom and bust". We were able to explain the importance of Community Benefit during the construction stage of the power station. Highlighting the fact that Bridgwater and surrounding area should be recognised as an Enterprise or Business Zone, able to retain all the business rates to invest back into the local economy".
Both MPs were interested in the proposals put forward by the Labour Group and another meeting will be scheduled in early 2014 to discuss the matter further.
