The House of Commons Energy Committee – chaired by SNP’s Angus MacNei (MP for Stornoway) – is to quiz the UK Energy Minister next week over the government’s renewable energy policies next week.

Recent UK government energy statements reducing the subsidies and prices paid for renewable energy have seen the UK dive out of the Global Top 10 league of ‘investor-attractive’ nations.

When they meet on Tuesday (20 Oct at 11.15am) MPs are expected to question Andrea Leadsom MP, Minister of State, Department of Energy and Climate Change, on recent policy statements, including:

  • Jobs in the renewables sector
  • Investor confidence, and
  • Investment decisions
