Warrington MPs David Mowat and Helen Jones say “constructive” and “productive” talks have taken place with the management team at Fiddlers Ferry Power station following concerns over hundreds of job losses in April and the future viability of the loss making power plant.
Mr Mowat met the management team today (Monday) alongside fellow MPs Helen Jones (Warrington North) and Derek Twigg (Halton).
Mr Mowat said: “Along with Derek Twigg MP and Helen Jones MP, I had a constructive meeting with Fiddlers Ferry Management Team. I also spoke to the Secretary of State for Energy, Amber Rudd.
“Although the power station is currently heavily loss-making, keeping it open may well continue to be necessary to keep the lights on.
“I personally feel that a decision to close would be premature and I will be making the case to Government and to SSE that we need to find a way of keeping it open, at least in the short to medium term.”
