Caroline Flint MP, Labour's Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, commenting on reports in the Guardian about Conservative MP Chris Heaton-Harris, and comments from the Energy Minister John Hayes who told Channel 4 News it was "end of story" for onshore wind power, said:

"Onshore wind power is the cheapest and most developed form of clean energy, with the potential to create thousands of badly-needed new jobs in Britain. But Government splits are undermining this key growth industry and putting Britain's energy security at risk.

"David Cameron promised to lead the 'greenest government ever' but his failure to control his own ministers and MPs is scaring away investors and job-creators in the clean energy industry."
