Government must get its house in order on climate change – Rebecca Long-Bailey MP

Rebecca Long-Bailey MP, Labour’s shadow business secretary, responding to news that the UK and Italian governments are presenting a proposal to jointly assume the Presidency of the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, said:

“While Labour welcomes efforts to bring the climate conference to the UK, the government should start by getting its own house in order.

“The government must acknowledge just how disastrous Conservative policies have been for renewable energy in the UK, and take the steps needed to get the UK back on track to meeting its own climate targets.”
