Tom Greatrex MP, Labour’s Shadow Energy Minister, responding to John Hayes’ interview in The House magazine, said:
“David Cameron needs to get a grip on energy policy. With his ministers bickering about who's in charge, uncertainty is undermining jobs and investment in the energy industry and putting Britain's energy security at risk.
“It's now clearer than ever that the Government will fail to meet David Cameron's back-of-an-envelope pledge to put everyone on the lowest tariff. Families hit by rising bills are paying the price of this Government's incompetence.”
