Vince Cable talks on climate change, carbon and a green economy – a TSL interview

Earlier this month, we travelled to Westminster to interview Vince Cable, the MP and Lib Dem Shadow Chancellor, in the lead-up to last week’s Trust for Sustainable Living conference, Sustainability: Where Are We Going?.

Cable could well become Chancellor in the upcoming election – he is considered to be the most likely candidate if there is a hung parliament – so it was a good opportunity to ask about his views on a variety of green issues.

He had originally agreed to be a conference speaker but plans changed and our conference day was declared Budget Day. Instead, he agreed to be interviewed by TSL/TLR director Karl Hansen and Belinda Hawkins of Botanic Gardens Conservation International on some of the key themes raised by the conference.

    I have solar panels fitted on my roof, up till the end of March British Gas paid me for surplas electicity that was fed into the Grid but due to my information not reaching Ofgem in time British Gas will not pay. What ideas has Dr.V.Cable on this subject? I dont think it right I should charged on what I use and not paid for what I produce.
    Many thanks Frank West
