The construction of the UK’s first nuclear fusion site in Nottinghamshire, according to MPs in the county’s former coalfield communities, could replace some of the jobs lost from coal mining.

A national enquiry has been launched to investigate whether job losses in the coal industry have been fully replaced and whether these jobs offer adequate pay and opportunities.

A devolution agreement that would grant more power to Nottinghamshire councils has also been mentioned as something that could improve long-term opportunities for people living in former coalfield areas.

Since then, studies have shown that people in these former mining areas have a more difficult time finding good jobs than people in other parts of the country.
