Liberal Democratic Party: Labour’s feed-in tariff plans too little too late says Hughes

Press Release   •   Feb 02, 2010 10:30 GMT

“The Government has given in to the nuclear lobby at the expense of community-led power generation," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary.

Commenting on today’s announcement by the Government of details of its feed-in tariff scheme, Simon Hughes said:

“This will disappoint anyone looking to do their bit to contribute towards our energy supply.

“Another opportunity has been squandered. While dozens of countries already support home energy generation, Labour’s plans are too little too late.

“The Government has given in to the nuclear lobby at the expense of community-led power generation.

“People who supply green energy should get a better deal if we want to cut energy bills, create green jobs and help cut emissions.”
