EU assessing UK-China nuclear plant deal, paper says

The European Commission is assessing possible UK incentives for a nuclear power plant deal that attracted Chinese investment, the China Daily reported Monday. “The commission has been assessing UK plans to support nuclear power on the basis of a notification by the UK authorities,” Antoine Colombani, a spokesman for European Commission Vice-President Joaquín Almunia, was quoted as saying. He was referring to a nuclear power plant deal that was struck when British Prime Minister David Cameron met Premier LiKeqiang in Beijing earlier this month. The focus of the case is whether the UK government offered financial support in violation of EU rules.
