In this talk he will take a broad view of the nuclear industry and its role in our energy mix, and give his own insights into the future of nuclear technology in the UK.
Lord Hutton was appointed Chair of the Nuclear Industry Council in 2013. He was invited by the coalition government to Chair a Commission on public service pensions, with its final report being published in 2011.
