We seem to have some progress on nuclear energy policy in terms of Gen IV reactors and small modular reactors. The rhetoric is no longer just about steam rollering out GEN 3 technology at any cost, although the government hasn't given up on this objective quite yet, unfortunately

The business department and DECC have collaborated on this document which is encouraging for the future.

Telegraph's View

"Government extends new nuclear power station timetable by five years, confirms first plant will cost up to £14bn
The Government has dropped its target of having new nuclear power plants running by 2025, admitting it now expects them to be developed "by 2030"."
