Ed Davey on energy bill and government carbon target

Help

The government is legislating for a decarbonisation target, the energy and climate change secretary said, as a Tory MP tabled an amendment against the coalition's energy bill.

Ed Davey said Lib Dems should back the coalition bid for action in 2016, and he explained why he thought there were problems with setting a target next year, ahead of a fifth carbon budget.

The Lib Dem MP claimed the "whole coalition supports decarbonisation" and stated the government position after Tim Yeo explained his call for Tories and Lib Dems to back him.
