Peter Aldous urges Government to commit to long-term plan for offshore wind

Peter Aldous welcomes news that the East Anglia One and Galloper offshore wind schemes are progressing, but he calls on the Government to put in place a long-term economic plan beyond 2020 to ensure that the industry can realise its full potential.
 
Peter Aldous (Waveney) (Con): Offshore wind has the potential to create many jobs in East Anglia and it is great news that two schemes—East Anglia One and Galloper—are now moving quickly forward. For the industry to realise its full potential, it is vital for it to have a long-term economic plan beyond 2020. Will my right hon. Friend work with the industry to put that plan in place?
 
Amber Rudd: I share my hon. Friend’s enthusiasm for offshore wind in terms both of generation in the UK and of the supply chain. It has fantastic potential for export. Yesterday I visited the offshore wind conference in London and it was buzzing with excitement and enthusiasm. I reassure him that we will provide that certainty in due course.
