RESIGNED FROM THE GOVERNMENT IN PROTEST

The government minister with responsibility for renewable energy and the Non-Fossil Fuel Obligation (NFFO) has unexpectedly quit his post in the Department of Trade and Industry. Charles Wardle resigned from the government in protest at European Union immigration policy -- an issue with which he was closely involved during a two year spell at the Home Office. In July last year he transferred to the DTI where as Parliamentary Under Secretary for Industry and Energy he oversaw the third round of support for renewables (NFFO-3). By the middle of February no replacement had yet been appointed.
