Climate Committee Chair: Green power package is realistic
Tim Yeo, Chairman of the House of Commons Energy and Climate Change Committee, said Liberal Democrat Ed Davey's Energy Department had "come out ahead on points" in negotiations, and he described the Treasury's package of support for green power as "realistic".
He told BBC Radio 4's Today: "I personally think that a couple of pounds a week - maybe rising to almost £3 a week - is a reasonable price for Britain to achieve a degree of energy security to reduce its total dependence on fossil fuels and to honour its commitments to cut green house gases."
