The Government is asked to support environmentally friendly technologies every day. It's called on to invest in renewable generation and to subsidise electric vehicles. But in this case, it could actually make money while helping clean alternatives to diesel to flourish. It seems like one of the simpler decisions that the Chancellor would have to make this week.

Julian Huppert | Posted 13.03.2016 | UK Politics
Julian Huppert

I care about security, and I care about privacy. We do need legislation to control state surveillance, and it should allow the state to monitor people suspected of serious wrongdoing, while stopping mass surveillance of the whole population.
