Government still way off track to meet climate targets – Andy McDonald responds to cleaner fuels consultation

Andy McDonald MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, responding to the government’s consultation on cleaner fuels, said:

 

“Labour has been calling on the Government to mandate the use of E10 petrol for some time now, but they have dragged their feet, undermining UK industry and the fight against climate change.

 

“The government is inching towards greener fuels, but the UK is still way off track to meet its climate targets.

 

“If the government is serious about reducing transport emissions, they should reverse their cuts to bus services, increase support for electric vehicles and cancel their plans to spend £30 billion on building new motorways and major roads.”
