Environment

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges we face and I can assure you that I recognise the importance and urgency of public debate on this issue.  I am proud of the UK’s world-leading role in tackling climate change and the transition to Clean Growth, with the UK being the first country to legislate to eliminate our contribution to climate change by 2050, and the fastest in the G20 to cut emissions. Since 1990, the UK has cut emissions by more than 40 per cent while growing the economy by more than two thirds, and we are a world-leader in offshore wind.  This section contains a number of my responses to questions I have received from constituents in relation to environmental issues.
