Energy Secretary Ed Davey has paid tribute to former energy minister Malcolm Wicks, who has died at the age of 65. Mr Davey said:
This is very sad news, and my thoughts are with Malcolm's family at this time. As well as being a respected parliamentarian, Malcolm's knowledge and passion on energy issues commanded huge respect, and we are all the poorer for his passing.
