LONDON – Centrica PLC (CNA.LN), the only U.K. company in the running to build a new generation of atomic power plants in the U.K., said it could scrap its plans because of uncertainty over the government's energy policy, the Financial Times reported Sunday.
"Nuclear power stations cost
GBP6 billion each and we must know what the return is going to be on
that kind of investment," a person close to the company told the
Financial Times. "If we don't get the right answers, we won't proceed."
