Danielle Rowley responds to that Glasgow will host COP 26 if it takes place in the UK

Danielle Rowley MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Climate Justice and Green Jobs, speaking on the decision that Glasgow will host COP 26 if it takes place in the UK, said:

“Glasgow hosting COP 26 will be a brilliant opportunity to showcase Scotland’s potential to be a world leader on climate and green jobs.

“Hosting COP 26 is also a clear moment for both the UK and Scottish governments to dramatically step up on the urgent and radical work that needs to be done to avoid climate catastrophe. Both governments banning fracking today, for example, would be a start.”
