Huhne under fire for hitting out at green law 'deregulation zealots' who want to bin costly red tape

Chris Huhne is facing a backlash from Conservative MPs and businesses - after hitting out at 'deregulation zealots' who want to stem the tidal wave of costly new green laws.

In an extraordinary outburst the Liberal Democrat Cabinet minister attacked Tory colleagues as 'right-wing ideologues' for questioning the value of some environmental regulations.

In a speech to the Social Liberal Forum, the Energy Secretary said it was 'nonsense' that key green legislation, including the flagship Climate Change Act, had been included in a Government review of red tape.
