View Full Fact report: The Energy Bill and the Salisbury Convention

The penny drops…. This is why our Conservative MP’s keep insisting the Energy Bill shouldn’t have been a surprise to industry, because it was in their manifesto! Ahhh….
Just something else to fight over in the big chambers when all we need is decent energy policy based on fact…
