Tidal lagoon (continued)
There are those who feel I should have objected to Tim Farron's commitment to the Swansea tidal power scheme when he announced it in Cardiff this morning, in view of my earlier posting about the business side of the scheme. On the contrary, I thoroughly welcome his endorsement of the principle of tidal power. Even if this particular firm is found wanting - and so far we have only Private Eye publicly casting doubts - planning consents are in place so that one potential cause of major delay to the project has been eliminated.
