LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's new coalition government, led by the Conservative's David Cameron, plans to set a minimum price for emitting climate-warming carbon, while Liberal Democrat MPs will abstain from a parliamentary vote on building new nuclear power stations, it said on Wednesday.

Under the deal, the LibDems will speak against the upcoming national planning statement (NPS) on new nuclear plants in Britain, but will not vote on the issue.

The Conservative party said in March it would implement a carbon tax on power generation if European Union carbon prices fell below a certain level.
