Responding to today’s significant backbench rebellion over the lack of a clean energy target in the Energy Bill,  Greenpeace Executive Director John Sauven said:

“The size of this rebellion means Energy Secretary Ed Davey now has no excuse not to fight for a stronger Energy Bill that will actually reduce pollution from Britain’s power sector, and secure investment that could create thousands of new green jobs.

“The momentum behind new green jobs amendments shows this debate will continue in the House of Lords – and all eyes will now be on Nick Clegg and Ed Davey to up their game in the weeks ahead.”
