Huw Irranca-Davies MP, Labour's Shadow Energy Minister, responding to today’s announcement on a fast-track review of Feed-in-Tariffs said:

“This decision makes a mockery of the government’s green credentials and shows they have no plans for jobs and growth. The Tory-led government’s level of ‘green ambition’ has been spectacularly downgraded and they are putting at risk thousands of jobs created in the 11 months since Labour introduced the FIT scheme.   

“The Government’s handling of the Feed-In-Tariff review has been nothing short of a debacle. The announcement of an early review has shaken investor certainty in an industry that was beginning to flourish. 

“Labour will study the details of today’s consultation announcement closely, and will work jointly with industry, whose initial responses have been scathing."
