Davey Squashes Hayes on Windfarms

Politics Home

Ed Davey will underline his commitment to wind power today despite warnings from Energy Minister John Hayes that ‘enough is enough’ for onshore turbines, PoliticsHome has learned.

The Energy Secretary will tell the renewables industry today that Coalition policy has not changed.

It emerged that Mr Davey vetoed a speech by Mr Hayes at a conference in Glasgow.

“This may be the speech that John Hayes and the Tory Tea Party wanted but it was even delivered because he was told not to,” a Lib Dem source said.

Davey vetoed key lines from Hayes’ speech having seen its first draft and in the end he only delivered a few sentences to the Renewables conference in Glasgow.
