Tories sell off Green Investment Bank

Ed Davey, former Liberal Democrat Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, has accused the government of engaging in a “politically dubious” act by announcing the controversial sale of the Green Investment Bank to an Australian bank in a cut price deal. He said that the sale of the Bank by the “Toxic Tories” is “environmentally irresponsible, and on the eve of an election is politically dubious. The government clearly hopes to avoid parliamentary scrutiny.”  He described the £2.3 billion agreement as “selling off the family silver”.
