Boris Johnson and Liz Truss join forces for wind farm rebellion

Boris Johnson and Liz Truss have joined a backbench rebellion over energy policy in their first major parliamentary interventions since leaving No 10.

The two former prime ministers have signed an amendment to the government’s Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill in an effort to end a ban on new onshore wind farms.

The amendment is being tabled by Simon Clarke, who served as levelling up secretary under Truss.

Clarke told The Times: “People across the Conservative Party are getting behind this amendment because it’s pro-growth and pro-green — in a time when we ought to stand for both”.
