ECONOMY Minister Simon Hamilton had been due to appear before the economy committee at Stormont this morning to answer questions on the botched green energy scheme Renewable Heat Incentive but has not done so.

A departmental press officer said the minister had been invited to the committee but "had not confirmed his attendance". 

"The minister will be in the Assembly chamber today to take forward the draft Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017 for approval,” the spokeswoman added.
