Tim Yeo, Chair of the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee is once again calling for The Treasury to provide evidence on the draft Energy Bill.
Yeo has written to Chloe Smith, Economic Secretary to the Treasury, stating his disappointment at Smith’s “refusal to offer a direct response to the Committee’s questions”. Yeo also emphasised a statement from a Downing Street Spokesperson “The Prime Minister and the Chancellor and all Cabinet ministers comply with the wishes of select committees”. This was in regards to the Barclay’s Libor rate fixing case. Yeo also asked Smith to “keep to the spirit of this statement and assist the Committee by offering a written reply as soon as possible”.
