Onshore wind more popular with Tory voters than MPs realise, poll shows

In response to the latest polling, Simon Clarke, the Conservative MP for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland, described any block on new wind farms which have local support would be "hugely regressive".

He said: "This is further evidence that onshore wind is popular with voters - more so than many realise. Given the urgent need for new energy supplies to bring down bills and achieve energy self-sufficiency, it would be hugely regressive to block new onshore wind farms where communities support them.

"This policy affects not just how voters perceive our record on tackling climate change, but our seriousness on tackling the root causes of high energy prices and the cost of living."
