New energy secretary’s appointment underlines unhealthy relationship between government and nuclear sector

Anti-nuclear campaigners have slammed the decision to appoint Ed Davey as the new Energy and Climate Change Secretary as further evidence of the unhealthily close relationship between the government and the nuclear energy sector.

Campaign group, Kick Nuclear, has learned that Davey’s brother, Henry, is a partner at Herbert Smith, a law firm that has a long-standing relationship with the nuclear giant EDF Energy. Herbert Smith’s website declares that it is, ‘proud to be at the vanguard of next generation nuclear in the UK’.
