March 16, 2006 12:01 PM

Cambridge MP, David Howarth, has been promoted today to the Liberal Democrat Energy portfolio.

Mr. Howarth will speak for the Liberal Democrats on energy policy and will be part of the Shadow Department of Trade and Industry team led by Ed Davey MP. Mr. Howarth's opposite number on the Government bench is Malcolm Wicks MP.

Mr. Howarth commented:

"The need to combat global warming and find sustainable forms of energy is one of the most pressing political issues of our time. As Shadow Spokesperson on Energy I will be watching very carefully to make sure that the Government fully considers the implications of their energy policies for the future."
