Energy reshuffle 'worrying'

A South Yorkshire MP has warned that a ministerial reshuffle at the Department for Energy and Climate Change is 'worrying'.

South Lincolnshire MP John Hayes is leaving the department to become the Prime Minister's senior parliamentary adviser.

Don Valley MP Caroline Flint is Labour's Shadow Energy Secretary.

It is worrying that, at a time when the Energy Bill is still going through Parliament, crucial negotiations for nuclear power are ongoing and investors are losing confidence with this Government, David Cameron has chosen to appoint a part-time energy minister.
