Fight on for wind power subsidies

Wind power firms warn they may take the government to court if they get caught in a political row over subsidies.

After conducting technical studies, the energy department proposed a subsidy cut of 10% for power from onshore wind.

But the chancellor is under pressure from back-benchers to scrap subsidies, and is said to favour a 25% cut.
