Two million pounds paid out by DECC as "bonuses"
Who says there isn't any money in climate-change alarmism:
Caroline Flint MP, Labour's Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, has said that Ministers have serious questions to answer after figures obtained by Labour revealed that the Department for Energy and Climate Change has paid nearly two million pounds in bonuses in the last two years, while millions of families are struggling with soaring energy bills. Last year, over 100 employees were awarded bonuses bigger than the typical annual household energy bill.
Caroline Flint said:
"Hard-pressed families and pensioners struggling to make ends meet will be astonished that out of touch Ministers at the Department for Energy and Climate Change have paid their staff over a million pounds in bonuses, while energy bills have soared.
"Edward Davey has serious questions to answer about why his Department is paying out so much in bonuses, while everyone else is struggling with soaring energy bills."
