Davey plays down energy rift

Davey plays down energy rift
Ed Davey has sought to quell fears that a Coalition disagreement about green energy could put off potential investors.

Mr Davey had yesterday criticised comments from one of his ministers, Conservative John Hayes, who said the UK had “enough” onshore wind farms. But he denied such arguments were sowing confusion in the market.

At Energy Questions today Mr Davey reminded MPs that he was in charge of setting policy, and said of Mr Hayes:

“He and I may occasionally disagree on issues of substance, and I certainly didn’t agree with his remarks the other day, but I have to say I admire his style.”

It comes after former Energy minister Charles Hendry warned the Government risks losing investment in green technology if it does not clarify its policies on renewables.

Separately, the Times reports that 20 Conservative MPs have written to the Prime Minister urging him to stop sending 'mixed messages' to investors on the issue.
