SNP MP for Na h-Eileanan an Iar (the Western Isles) Angus MacNeil has been appointed to chair the influential energy and climate change select committee. But will the Scottish lion roar?
After two attempts to do so in the Commons yesterday, it is to be hoped that Mr MacNeil finds his voice and encourages the requisite mix of new generation throughout the UK.
Angus MacNeil said: "I am very pleased to have been nominated as Chair of the Energy and Climate Change Committee. I look forward to working with the other Members of the Committee once they have been appointed to scrutinise the work of the Department of Energy and Climate Change."
