Calls to back eco bank bid

Have your say

NEW Energy Secretary Ed Davey is being urged to back Edinburgh’s case to host the new UK Green Investment Bank.

Edinburgh Central SNP MSP Marco Biagi called on Mr Davey – appointed yesterday to replace Chris Huhne after he resigned to answer a charge of perverting the course of justice over speeding points – to press Business Secretary Vince Cable to locate the bank here.

Mr Biagi said: “Edinburgh has a unique network of financiers, academics and government agencies all at the heart of the green energy revolution.”
