Carbon capture must get he go ahead before the general election

I've just tried to seek assurances from Ed Milliband, Energy Secretary, that the Government's carbon capture competition will not be delayed again and the result will be announced before the General Election.

The competition has already slipped by one year and there are fears it may slip again and get caught up in the general election.

Longannet Power Station is a strong contender for the competition to demonstrate that the whole technology process can work on an industrial scale.

The Energy Secretary refused to give me an assurance that result would be announced by the General Election only committing to speedy process.
