Government ‘totally negligent’ in failure to ease energy bills burden, Lib Dem leader says

Scotland Correspondent

The business and energy secretary has given a series of interviews today to mark the government’s new strategy, however his department said that neither he nor any of his ministers were able to speak to Channel 4 News.

We were joined by leader of the Liberal Democrats Sir Ed Davey, who was energy secretary under the Conservative-Lib Dem coalition when in 2014 Russia annexed Crimea – he warned then about European reliance on Russian gas supplies.
