Rebecca Long-Bailey responds to UN calls for urgent action to cut emissions

Rebecca Long-Bailey, Labour’s Shadow Secretary for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, responding to new calls from the UN for countries to take urgent action to cut emissions:

“The UN is calling for global emission cuts of over 7% a year. But last year the UK’s carbon emissions fell by a pathetic 2%.

“The choice facing the electorate is clear. A Green Industrial Revolution with Labour or climate chaos under the Tories.”
