New nuclear is not subsidised

IN launching its report arguing for a greater say in UK energy policy, the Scottish Government claims that this would contribute to security of supply, that the "lower marginal cost" of wind will ensure reliability and affordability and that "subsidies" for new nuclear dwarf those for wind and marine ("SNP:

give us big say on energy or lights will go out", The Herald, April 7). It is worrying enough that any govern­ment should be making such claims but even more so if it believes them.
