UK says will have powers to intervene in foreign takeovers of infrastructure

LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May’s government said it would be able to intervene in any takeover of Britain’s critical infrastructure by a foreign owner that could affect national security.

The government said on Wednesday it would be able to scrutinise significant foreign investment for the purposes of protecting national security.
