Government’s climate targets are getting further and further off track – Rebecca Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on figures released today which show that the government is falling further behind on its climate targets, said:

“With our young people coming out onto the streets in record numbers calling for a structural change to tackle the climate crisis, the public will not forgive failure on this scale.

“These figures cut straight through Tory spin on the environment. The government’s climate targets are already inadequate, and they are getting further and further off track to meeting them.

“The Labour Party is committed to kick-starting a Green Industrial Revolution to tackle climate change and create hundreds of thousands of good new jobs.”
