John Robertson (Glasgow North West) (Lab): The Environment Secretary this week described wind turbines as “inappropriate technology which matured in the Middle Ages.” Does the Prime Minister agree? If not, why not?
The Prime Minister: We are making serious investments in renewable energy. We have set out a regime of subsidy that stretches right out to 2017 and beyond. That is why the renewable energy capacity of this country has doubled over the past two years under this Government.
