Neil calls for Carbon Emission Reductions

Neil joined 20 other Conservative MPs in writing to the Prime Minister to call for for the Government to secure an earl agreement on the UK's fifth Carbon Budget.

The Budget commits Britain to a 57% reduction in carbon emissions by 2032, from a 1990 baseline. The letter states:

"Following the historic outcome of the Paris climate conference, the shift to low carbon technology in transport, buildings and energy markets is accelerating again. The UK played a pivotal role in the agreement and we now need to make sure that we attract the greatest possible investment in UK low and zero carbon infrastructure with the supply chain and employment benefits this can bring."

The letter was signed by the following MPs:

 

Graham Stuart, Richard Benyon, Peter Aldous, Heidi Allen, Neil Carmichael, Alex Chalk, Oliver Colvile, Michelle Donelan, Flick Drummond, James Heappey, Kevin Hollinrake, Jonathan Lord, Neil Parish, Dr Daniel Poulter, Rebecca Pow, Antoinette Sandbach, Derek Thomas, David Warburton, Sarah Wollaston, and Mike Wood.
