At last night's meeting of the Swansea and Gower Liberal Democrats in Gorseinon, the local party unanimously passed a motion supporting the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon project. The lagoon was discarded by the Conservatives in Westminster in spite of broad cross party support and the strong support in the Hendry Review.
"Swansea and Gower Liberal Democrats note the decision of the CONSERVATIVE UK Government NOT TO SUPPORT the proposed Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon project. We wish to express our dismay that the project has been terminated. This will cost Swansea valuable jobs and income and rob Wales of a pioneering project to develop tidal power."
