The future of Energy Secretary Chris Huhne is unclear after he refused to rule out resigning over AV tensions.

The Lib Dem minister was asked the question during an interview with the BBC about the upcoming referendum on AV, in which he criticised some of his Coalition colleagues for their claims in the ‘No to AV’ campaign.

DECC’s response to ELN emphasised that environmental plans have been set out in the Coalition agreement, and would be unlikely to be affected in the event of a resignation.

A spokesperson for the Liberal Democrats told ELN: “It’s not likely, it’s not something he’s discussing at the moment. It’s one of many options on the table.”
