Today solar industry players and environmental campaigners will take part in a mass lobby in Parliament and a protest on Westminster Bridge in objection to Government’s proposal to cut the feed-in tariff by up to 50 percent from December 12.

Organised by the Cut don’t Kill Campaign, the day of action will see hundreds of representatives from the UK solar industry descend on Parliament today to march, protest and meet with their MPs in a bid to change the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) proposal.

The day will kick off at 11am when solar industry workers carrying mock solar panels will protest on Westminster Bridge highlighting the 25,000 jobs under threat.

At 1pm speakers, including Caroline Flint MP, will address an audience of solar industry workers and environmental campaigners at the Emmanuel Centre to call for the Government to abandon their proposed cut to the feed-in tariff.

Finally, at 2.30pm, hundreds of representatives of the Cut Don't Kill campaign from across the UK will meet with their MPs to urge them to oppose the Tariff cuts.

A Cut don’t Kill Campaign spokesperson said a petition was also being put together, that would be presented to Downing Street at a later stage in the campaign.

DECC maintains that the scale and timing of the FiT cuts are necessary to stop the scheme exceeding the budget.
