Dunne highlights visible evidence of new Green Industrial Revolution in Ironbridge

15th January 2020

Philip Dunne intervenes in the debate on the Queen’s Speech and the Green Industrial Revolution to highlight the demolition of the cooling towers at Ironbridge power station and the fact that one of the companies in that site is a leading company in driverless vehicles. 

My right hon. Friend is being very generous in giving way. She mentioned the cooling towers coming down. Was she aware that the four cooling towers of Ironbridge power station came down during the course of the general election, and that one of the companies interested in that industrial brownfield land is one of the leading companies involved in driverless vehicles? If the company is successful, I hope that she will come and open the factory.

My right hon. Friend might be setting up a bit of contest, because I think that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport, who is sitting next to me on the Front Bench, will be fighting me for that honour. None the less, my right hon. Friend the Member for Ludlow (Philip Dunne) makes a really good point about how, particularly in some of our areas of heavy industry, the fossil fuels of yesterday are giving way to the green future that we all want. He gives us a fantastic example of the work that is going on.
