  14. 'Increasing frustration with the lack of clarity'

    Brian Meechan

    BBC Wales business correspondent

    Quote Message: This is not a shock in that Airbus has been warning for years that it might be less likely to invest in Wales and the rest of the UK in future if it doesn't have easy access to the EU. It is a sign of its increasing frustration with the lack of clarity over the future trading relationship that it is now saying its long-term commitments, including to its Flintshire plant, could be in doubt. Airbus currently has workers and products moving quickly and seamlessly across EU countries and it is planning for what happens if that stops after Brexit. There are also a number of companies in Flintshire whose business in a large part revolves around supplying Airbus so there would be a ripple effect on the local economy if it invests less or begins to withdraw completely. Some have argued that the company wouldn't really do this but many said the same about Tata's warnings over a number of years that it was at risk due to high energy costs and cheap Chinese steel. Politicians only made moves to tackle its problems after it put its entire UK operations up for sale."

    He concludes, "Airbus has nothing to worry about".

  20. 'The goalposts have moved'

    Brian Meechan

    BBC Wales business correspondent

    Quote Message: This was a project that seemed at one point to have widespread and almost universal support in Wales. It required the UK government to agree a significant strike price - a subsidy paid by consumers through energy bills - although the exact amount varied depending on the length of time that price was set for and whether other taxpayer funding was invested in the project. The independent report by Charles Hendry was very supportive of the tidal lagoon. However, it also said that doing a full, value for money, assessment was beyond its scope. In recent months, some in the business community have been privately raising concerns about the cost of the project and its impact on energy bills. While Tidal Lagoon Power and the Welsh Government now say it is the same price as nuclear power, the UK government insist it is double. However, the goalposts have moved. There was huge criticism of the UK government over the price for energy struck for the new nuclear plant across the water at Hinkley Point. With a pledge not to commit bill payers to such costs again, even getting the cost of the lagoon to a similar figure was unlikely to be good enough. It seems, ultimately, that UK ministers do not have confidence that the lagoon developers are able to deliver the project at the price they now think is reasonable for consumers to pay. Especially as other options such as wind energy come in at a much lower cost."
