Web NNL 130712

MARK Menzies has visited the UK National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) to discover more about their work right here in Fylde.

Mr Menzies, Conservative MP for Fylde, visited the laboratory which is based at Springfields Nuclear Fuels Ltd site in Salwick last Friday.

As well as discussing the latest nuclear news with Springfields site management, Mr Menzies also took the opportunity to meet with NNL managers and visited their laboratory.

Mr Menzies said: “I was very pleased to pay my first visit to the National Nuclear Laboratory’s Preston Laboratory, situated on the Springfields site. My support for the nuclear industry, and those in my constituency who work in the industry, is well known, and it was fascinating to see the wide range of facilities which NNL have here and the variety of work being carried out. I knew beforehand that NNL were doing work to support Westinghouse on the Springfields site, but it was also pleasing to see how much work NNL are doing for other customers such as Sellafield Limited.

“I was also delighted to hear about the good work NNL are doing on skills, training and their apprentice programme. It’s very important to me that we see new high-quality jobs being created in the region, alongside the existing employment opportunities.”
