New twist in solar tariff cuts saga
"The truth is that the Government has missed the deadline legally required to provide notice to Parliament for the next round of cuts to come into force. Isn't it the Government's incompetence the real reason that they are now backtracking?"
Mr Davey replied: "Well she seems to think we shouldn't listen to the industry.
"Well I do listen to the industry and we are considering tweaking the start date for the next tariff reduction, but if we do it will be a tweak not a massive change, so I think she needs to understand that the changes that we have consulted on, that we are bringing in, will bring stability and will mean that we do have solar power for the many, not the few."
Ms Flint hit back stating: "Well I think they'll be laughs echoing outside this Chamber about the fact the Secretary of State suggested they've been listening to the industry."
