A leaked memo said migrants from countries with poor human rights records can be granted leave to remain after being here for a minimum of six years, down from the previous 10 to 12 years. It means 40,000 cases are exempt from deportation. The Home Office says the number is far smaller. Shadow home secretary Chris Grayling said: This looks like double standards.

A major new report by the energy regulator Ofgem claims that the UK will have to spend 200bn over the next decade if the country is to hit greenhouse gas targets and build enough new power stations -- and thousands of wind turbines -- to secure the nations energy supplies. And, Ofgem warns, it is household consumers who will have to pick up the bill. Consumer groups already say current average household energy bills of 1,200 a year are a scandal and at least 100 more than households should be paying. But today Ofgem warned energy prices will rise -- possibly by more than 60 per cent. Chief executive Alistair Buchanan said: Britain faces a tough challenge in maintaining secure supplies while at the same time meeting its climate change targets. These are big challenges. Consumers are already enduring high energy prices. Given the massive levels of investment needed, there is a high likelihood of rising consumer bills. Ofgem says the UK will need to spend the 200bn by 2020 to secure supplies in a volatile global gas market and build new power plants and windfarms to replace dirty coal power stations -- which under EU law have to be decommissioned by 2015.

His QC, James Eadie told the High Court Mr Balls acted for proper, sufficient and obvious reasons and dismissed Ms Shoesmiths claims that he had acted in haste. Mr Balls was responding on the third day of her demand for a judicial review of her sacking on the grounds that the minister, Ofsted and Haringey council acted illegally and unfairly. She was fired as the councils childrens services chief in December after a damning inspectors report on her department in the wake of the death of Peter Connelly at the hands of his mother, her boyfriend and their lodger in August 2007. Mr Eadie said Mr Balls had to act quickly once inspectors reported. A decision was taken against the backdrop of justifiable public concern as to safeguarding arrangements in Haringey and issues of public confidence. The case continues.
