Follow this EDM by:


That this House notes the Government's previous commitment to the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon (SBTL); highlights the recommendation to launch the SBTL project in the Hendry Review commissioned by the Government; further notes the Hendry Review described it as a matter of urgency; acknowledges the Conservative Party's failure to include the project in its election manifesto and in its Queen's speech, despite having previously committed to it in the last Parliament; welcomes the companies and firms that are on standby to bid for the procurement; notes that this energy scheme will encourage students towards STEM subjects and will give them a credible prospect of working in Wales; notes the potential of private capital investment in Wales and the generation of power for 155,000 homes over 120 years; recognises the opportunities the scheme will bring into Wales such as leisure, tourism and maritime activities; and calls on the Government to renew its commitment to the SBTL project and invest in Wales as they have in Northern Ireland.
