Feed-in-Tariffs comments from Caroline Flint MP, Labour

Caroline Flint MP, Labour's Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, said in response to the news that the Government has lost its appeal against a High Court ruling which found that cuts to solar tariff payments are legally flawed:

"Today’s ruling is a victory for all of us who have been warning for months that the Tory-led Government’s deep cuts to solar power are not just bad for the public, bad for jobs and growth, and bad for the environment, but legally flawed too.
“The Government has wasted time and money fighting the High Court ruling and created huge uncertainty, putting thousands of jobs in renewable energy at risk. The Government must now go back to the drawing board and bring forward more measured proposals that guarantee the continued growth of the solar industry, put feed-in tariffs on a sustainable footing and are fair to the public.”
