Commenting on Conservative MP and Conservative Party campaign manager in Corby, Chris Heaton-Harris backing an anti-wind farm candidate in the Corby by-election, Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader, Simon Hughes said:

"Some Conservatives are clearly so hell bent on disrupting the Coalition's green agenda that they're prepared to stab their own candidates in the back to do it.

"The Coalition's position on wind farms and green energy will not change because the Liberal Democrats will not let it. We are committed to making this the greenest government ever.

"The Conservatives should be in no doubt: we will hold them to their promises on the environment."
