The scientists at the heart of the Climategate email scandal were too secretive but their research was sound, MPs said last night.

The verdict follows three investigations into the world-leading global warming unit at the University of East Anglia accused of manipulating data to inflate the case of manmade climate change.

The Government’s response is designed to draw a line under the 18-month-long  saga blamed for denting the credibility of the science.

But critics said that the UEA had not learned its lesson and was still being  unnecessarily secretive.

The Climategate row, which was first revealed by the Daily Mail in November  2009, was triggered when a hacker stole hundreds of emails from the UEA’s Climatic Research Unit, and tracks long-term changes in temperature and plays a  leading role in compiling UN reports.

It is thought that the theft was motivated by the CRU’s repeated refusals to provide detailed information about the data underlying its temperature records.
